Minor in Physical Science
The Physical Science minor is designed for those majoring in areas outside of the Science and Technology Department but who wish to have some study of chemistry and physics. The Physical Science minor consists of 20 credits. Two of the four courses are in chemistry and the other two courses may be selected from either of the sequences in physics.
The Evangel University Department of Natural and Applied Sciences is dedicated to the spiritual, academic and social growth of every student. The department’s purpose is to provide an excellent scientific education that is thoroughly integrated with the University’s emphasis on the development of strong Christian character. Within this framework, students must contend with new scientific, social, ethical and technological challenges. Students learn to communicate technical concepts clearly and effectively and exhibit analytical thinking and problem-solving skills.
The physical science minor gives students who have an interest in chemistry and physics the opportunity to take these courses even though they choose to major in another subject area. It is an expansion of the liberal arts education concept. The study of physical science may enhance the understanding and application of many other majors.
Each of Evangel's academic programs is made up of a set of core curriculum, program requirements and electives. The courses listed below are just a small sample of courses that might be taken as a part of this specific program.
|General Chemistry I||Fundamentals of chemistry, including physical and chemical properties and changes, atoms, molecules and ions, mass relationships in chemical reactions, reactions in aqueous solution, gases and the gas laws, thermochemistry, quantum theory and the electronic structure of atoms, periodic relationships among elements, chemical bonding, molecular geometry and hybridization of atomic orbitals, intermolecular forces in liquids and solids, properties of solutions, and chemical kinetics.|
|General Chemistry II||Topics include chemical equilibrium, acid-base theories, acid-base equilibria, solubility equilibria, chemistry in the atmosphere, entropy and free energy, electrochemistry, the chemistry of metals, nonmetallic elements and their compounds, transition metal chemistry and coordination compounds, nuclear chemistry, and an introduction to organic chemistry.|
|General Physics I||College-level physics, including the fundamental principles of mechanics, thermal properties of matter, electromagnetism, optics, and modern physics based on a knowledge of college-level algebra and trigonometry|
|General Physics II||Continuation of General Physics I.|
|Engineering Physics I||Fundamental theories and principles in classical physics of mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and optics with an introduction in modern physics based on the knowledge of calculus and vector manipulations.|
Evangel University's world-class faculty is made up of caring, Christian professionals who are distinguished in their fields and dedicated to the development of tomorrow's Christian leaders.
NOTE: A minor is a secondary field of interest that is meant to complement your academic major. While your major is chosen for your intended career choice, your minor may be something you pursue for your personal interest or to augment your major.
An interest and knowledge of science may enhance any profession and be beneficial in bringing understanding to many community projects.
No special requirements for this program.
