Welcome to the Department of Chemistry, Geoscience, and Physics!

Edgewood Engaged Poster Session

A student in the Department of Chemistry, Geoscience, and Physics (CGP) will become a well-informed leader in a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology. Edgewood College instills the understanding of and lifelong enthusiasm for scientific discovery through hands-on learning—both inside and outside of the classroom. With a focus on research, our majors are great starting points for a wide range of careers.

In addition to exceptional facilities and outstanding classroom experiences, students also have the opportunity to participate in science-related clubs and organizations.

Students are also encouraged to pursue independent research projects and internships with strong support from faculty, staff, and other students and to get involved in our science-focused student groups.

Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Chemistry, Geoscience, and Physics at Edgewood College is to prepare all our students to be well-informed citizens and leaders in a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology.

Based on Sinsinawa Dominican values, we aim to instill in all our students an understanding of, and life-long enthusiasm for, the process of scientific discovery and a commitment to the responsible application of science. We are committed to innovation and excellence in our programs, and to preparing our majors to be successful in science-related careers that are vital for meeting future local, national, and global needs.
