Chatham University

Physics Curriculum

Chatham University offers both B.A. and B.S. degrees in Physics in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). This major prepares students for graduate or engineering study or for employment in industry. Students take first-year physics requirements and mathematics courses at Chatham; upper-level physics requirements and electives are taken at CMU through a special cross-registration agreement. Students also may choose to seek certification in physics at the secondary level by completing the appropriate courses in the education program at Chatham. A minor in physics is not available.

To complete this major, students should plan to register for both calculus and physics during the first semester of the first year. Tutorial work will be done at CMU with collaboration between Chatham and CMU faculties.
