Undergraduate Degree Programs

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN CHEMISTRY

The purpose of the chemistry degree is to offer the student comprehensive training in modern chemical principles in preparation for a career in industry or the health professions or for graduate study in chemistry or related fields.

Chemistry is the study of the composition and interaction of all substances. Areas of study range from chemical and instrumental analysis of mixtures to synthesis and characterization of polymers to molecular modeling to the chemistry of the human body and to computational chemistry.

The degree program in chemistry at Southeastern is designed to offer the student comprehensive training in modern chemical principles in preparation for a career in industry or the health professions or for graduate study in chemistry or related fields. The study of chemistry is also important for fostering the scientific literacy of students in other disciplines, such as environmental science, law, education, and business.

A Minor in Chemistry will be granted upon satisfactory completion of 21-22 semester hours of chemistry consisting of the following courses: Chemistry 121-123, Chemistry 122-124, Chemistry 251-254 or Chemistry 481-482, Chemistry 265-267, and Chemistry 266- 68.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN PHYSICS

The purpose of the physics degree is to assist students in the learning of fundamental principles in physics and to apply these principles to a wide range of careers in science, technology, and/or engineering.

The notion that all matter from subatomic particles to galactic clusters obeys a small set of principles that can be modeled mathematically is the fundamental premise of physics. The degree program in physics offers comprehensive training in all four major fields of physics: mechanics, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics. When combined with the numerous opportunities for undergraduate research in physics, the degree produces students who are well prepared for a career in industry or for graduate study in physics or engineering.

A minor in physics will be granted upon satisfactory completion of 20 semester hours in physics at the 200 level or above, eight hours of which must be Physics 221-223, and Physics 222-224.

LSU PRE-ENGINEERING PROGRAM
(Non-Southeastern Degree Seeking)

Students must register as physics or chemistry majors; but students who decide to change from non-Southeastern degree seeking to Southeastern degree seeking status may not be able to complete the Southeastern degree in four years.

NOTE: High school preparation should include as much algebra, trigonometry, and advanced mathematics as possible as well as courses in chemistry and physics.
