Department Chair


​​​​​​Mission Statement               

The mission of the department is to provide comprehensive and rigorous physics and chemistry curricula that enable students’ successful transition to careers and/or associate and bachelor degree programs.             


Smart and cutting-edge studio classrooms
The department features state-of-the-art instrumentation and instructional facilities. We have a gas chromatography/mass spectrometer, as well as an infrared spectrometer, along with standard laboratory glassware and materials. Our classes are taught in smart classrooms which include modern studio classrooms and a student/instructor ratio is maintained at 35:1 or below.​​

The Physical Sciences Department offers courses in chemistry, physics, and physics with health science applications in safe state-of-the-art smart classrooms and laboratories.  These courses are offered for students seeking to fulfill prerequisites for admission to Health Careers Programs (Chemistry 121, 201, and Physics 131). Transferrable college credit courses are also offered in both chemistry (general and organic chemistry) and physics. Students interested in applying to medical school and/or taking the MCAT exam could benefit from taking Organic Chemistry. Undergraduate research options are also a possibility.
