Nanoscale science is an cutting-edge field, emerging from the interface of the traditional sciences: biology, chemistry, and physics. Solutions to the problems of today and the future will require an interdisciplinary approach and will come from discoveries at the frontier of the nanometer size-range. To prepare our students to be leaders in innovation, the Bachelor of Science in Nanoscale Science degree is based on a core curriculum of foundational courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Students can then choose to focus their interests and develop their expertise by taking advanced courses in nanobiology, nanochemistry, and nanophysics.
The Nanoscale Science Core curriculum is listed below. Learn more about about our emphases in
