The Chemical Physics program is designed for students who are interested in the study of the physics and physical chemistry of molecular and atomic-scale systems, and condensed matter. Course emphasis is on the physics and physical chemistry of atomic, molecular, and bulk systems, as well as the mathematical techniques and approaches needed to do quantitative work in these areas. A Chemical Physics education at Trent involves working closely with faculty and staff in formal lecture and informal laboratory and tutorial/workshop settings. Students enroll in either a General or an Honours program. Honours research projects offer an opportunity for students to obtain first-hand experience in modern chemical physics research design and methods.
The Chemical Physics program is a sequence of courses that compose an integrated whole and are offered by the Departments of Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics & Astronomy. For more information, please see the Undergraduate Academic Calendar.
