CHEMICAL PHYSICS/BACHELOR OF SCIENCE

All students majoring in this program may take a required class only twice at Lewis University.  If a student has not achieved a minimum of a "C" after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class. Chemical Physics majors may not double major in Physics or Chemistry.

All Chemical Physics students will take the core courses listed (65 credit hours) and then branch out into either the Physics Track (11-13 additional credit hours) OR the Chemistry Track (17-18 additional credit hours).

Total Credit Hours: 128
Major Credit Hours in Physics Track: 76-78
Major Credit Hours in Chemistry Track: 82-83
