Chemistry & Physics
Courses in chemistry and physics prepare you for graduate studies or employment in education, industry or medicine. Chemistry forms the cornerstone of Northern's preprofessional programs in the health fields, including pre-med, pre-nursing, pre-veterinary science and pre-health sciences.
The traditional class setting is complemented by the appropriate use of scientific and graphing calculators and computer technology. Students explore concepts through concrete examples and applications. Applications of mathematics provide students with some insight into the relationship between mathematics and other disciplines.
A degree in mathematics is useful in a wide variety of professional fields such as business, economics, computer science, education, and technology, as well as for graduate studies in mathematics or closely related fields. Students are encouraged to consult with the department regarding career potentials.
