"The most rewarding part of my college career is working with the great people in the Physics department. I get to show up, work on some of the most interesting problems of our world, and then get to talk with some of the most intelligent people I've ever known." - William Reeves, Post-BAAC, Physics
"Being a tutor and a teaching assistant is like harvesting gold. It feels amazing to bring students together based on the principles and passion for chemistry." - Asmat Jahan, Junior, Chemistry
Chemistry and Physics are the fundamental backbone of all science and technology.
A chemistry or physics degree will allow you to develop the analytical and problem-solving skills that are universally sought after by graduate and professional schools as well as by employers. With the demand for scientifically literate college graduates being as strong as ever this indicates that a solid foundation in chemistry and physics is a must to stay on the cutting edge of nearly any science or engineering field.
