The Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences has active programs in Chemistry, Physics, and Process Technology. Our faculty spans professors specializing in chemistry, physics, engineering, and astronomy. A small department, we work collaboratively to make each of our programs apply the rigor of each area to help students reach their potential no matter their choice of major.
The Chemistry Program offers both BA and BS degrees on the St. Thomas Campus with a rigorous curriculum that well prepares students for graduate school or professional school. Students can take their first year of General Chemistry on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix. Graduates from the Chemistry Program over the past ten years have > 70% acceptance into graduate or professional schools. Many have gone on to Medical Fields (research or practice), Pharmacy, or Cosmetic Sciences.
The AS in Physics is offered on the St. Thomas Campus and offers students the chance to tailor their curriculum. The physics faculty are integrated strongly into the 3-2 Engineering Program, and many students find that the AS in Physics is an excellent complement to a Bachelors degree in Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, or Computer Science.
The AAS in Process Technology is offered on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix and offers students the chance to work closely with the industrial companies that are the largest employers on St. Croix. Developed in partnership with large employers, the program focuses on skills students will need to be immediately employable.
