Academic Programs

The Department of Chemistry and Physics sponsors events and programs to support education and collaborate research on campus.

Chemistry and Physics Seminar

The Department of Chemistry and Physics supports a series of seminars meeting the needs of students and faculty, both at Southeastern and other Universities. Faculty members and students from Chemistry and Physics as well as other departments, make use of the series to keep other faculty and students apprised of their activities.

Speakers from other Universities and businesses have used the seminar series as a forum in which to inform Southeastern students of post-graduate opportunities, whether in graduate school or in industry. Further, these seminars have served as a catalyst for collaborative research projects between Southeastern faculty and faculty at other Universities. By acting as a catalyst for 'speaker exchanges', our seminar series has promoted interactions as Southeastern faculty present their work to the faculty of other Universities.

While it focuses upon opportunities in physics and chemistry, speakers have also presented the following discussions: the work of chemists in the wake of 9/11, forensic medicine, the Creationism/evolution debate and the philosophical concept of emergent properties.

The department's seminars are held in Pursley Hall Room 211 from 12:00PM to 1:00PM on Fridays unless otherwise indicated. They are open to all who are interested.
