Chemistry is one of the central physical sciences. As a Chemistry Major, you will explore matter at its most basic—as a collection of atoms.
To earn the equivalent of a minor in Chemistry, you must complete four broad introductory-level courses as well as two chemistry electives of your choice.
The physics of the universe appears to be dominated by the effects of four fundamental forces: gravity, electromagnetism, weak nuclear forces, and strong nuclear forces. These forces control how matter, energy, space, and time interact to produce our physical world. All other forces, such as the force you exert in standing up, are ultimately derived from these fundamental forces.
