An honors and a major program in chemical physics are offered jointly by the departments of Chemistry and Physics. Entry requires permission of both departments. Computing skills such as those in CMPT 102 are expected of students entering second year physics. Graduates from the honors program may do graduate work in either chemistry or physics.
