The Physics Department offers an applied physics major and administers the cooperative engineering program in which students study at Saint Anselm College for three years and then move on to one of the following cooperating institutions to complete their engineering studies: The University of Notre Dame, Catholic University, Manhattan College, and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Students earn both a Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts from Saint Anselm College and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the cooperating institution.
The Physics Department, in partnership with the Departments of Computer Science, Chemistry, Philosophy, and Mathematics offers a Certificate in Computational Physical Sciences.
Clare Booth Luce Scholarship Program
As one of only ten colleges and universities selected in 2008 to receive funding from the Clare Boothe Luce Program of the Henry Luce Foundation, Saint Anselm College was awarded $350,000 to provide full two-year scholarships to four outstanding women in the Class of 2012. Selected in their sophomore year and majoring in biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, cooperative engineering, environmental science, mathematics, natural science or physics, the chosen grant recipients will receive support to cover tuition, room, board, and fees during their junior and senior years.
