At Lakeland College, learning chemistry means living chemistry. Once you dive into our interactive program, you'll quickly realize that here, you are one of a kind — not one of many. "I know every one of my students personally," says Brian Frink, Lakeland College's award-winning Lakeland College Professor Chemistry and Physics. "If you want that kind of attention so you can become the best chemist you want to be, then I would say you need to come to Lakeland." Small Classes, Big Rewards Yes, when it comes to student-professor interaction, you might say our chemistry is strong. At Lakeland College, you won't sit in a large auditorium with a couple hundred of your peers, robotically taking notes while a professor lectures through a microphone. Here, with the encouragement of Frink, you'll be involved, engaged and invested. The goal is to help you understand chemistry rather than just memorize chemistry or survive chemistry. And that's the really great thing about Lakeland's chemistry program. Students are encouraged — no, expected — to apply what they learn in a very real-world way. All of our graduates successfully carry out research projects they design in the first semester of their senior year. "By the time they're done, they've all had a mini-research project," Frink says proudly. "They can talk to prospective employers about that, or bring it up while interviewing for graduate programs or pre-professional programs. They can discuss the troubles they had and how they solved them. It's everything an employer or graduate school would want in a student." Chemistry at Lakeland Through Lakeland's interactive approach, chemistry students are taught all of the fundamentals and core principles so vital to this discipline. Our students: Understand and work with the central concepts of chemical reactions, including the thermodynamics, kinetics, syntheses and mechanisms that produce those reactions Formulate and solve problems by applying the scientific method, particularly within a laboratory setting Effectively communicate scientific knowledge to varied audiences through multiple methods (e.g. writing as if for scientific journals, formal and informal presentations) Perform lab practices safely and professionally, employing up-to-date computer and instrumentation technology Work effectively as part of a team or on independent projects Recent Grads, Real Careers Listed below are just some of the jobs or graduate school positions Lakeland College chemistry students from recent graduating classes have landed: Chemist, Kohler Co.

Students wishing to pursue an immediate career in science or technology, or wishing to pursue graduate studies in physics should take recommended upper division courses as electives. The coursework consists of two components. A science component referred to as major requirements and a comprehensive portion called the core curriculum. For more information regarding the core-curriculum requirements visit the core curriculum website. Related Degrees and Programs Physics, Minor Physics, Master of Science Degree Physics, Doctor of Philosophy Degree Guidelines for Physics 497: Senior Thesis PHYS 497 (senior thesis) is the physics major capstone course that students complete during their senior year. The senior thesis is a research project that is conducted under the direction of a faculty member, the product of which is a 10-20 page thesis that is submitted to the advisor and to one other faculty member who serves as reader. After submission of the thesis, the student gives a 20-30 minute oral presentation to the Physics Department. Advertising the thesis presentation within the Physics Department is the student's responsibility. To enroll in PHYS 497, students must have already made an arrangement with an advisor and must obtain the call number from the Physics Department office. Students who require assistance in finding a senior thesis project should consult the undergraduate advisor. There is considerable flexibility in the choice of thesis topics in experimental, theoretical, computational, educational or library research in physics. Since it is a capstone, an essential element of the thesis is to connect a topic in physics to the world at large in some meaningful way. Some students have completed a senior thesis project in chemical physics under the direction of a faculty member of the Chemistry Department, or in atmospheric physics under the direction of a faculty member of the Desert Research Institute. Many students enroll in senior thesis during their second-last semester and get started on their project but do not complete the thesis until their last semester. In that case they receive a grade of incomplete at the end of that first semester and a final grade upon completion. They do not register for senior thesis during that second semester. Some students who had already begun a research project under the direction of a faculty member have completed the senior thesis during one semester. That decision depends mostly on the student, the project and other demands on the student's time. Completing the thesis in two semesters and receiving a grade of incomplete for the first semester carries no stigma. [-]
