Nuclear science is applicable to many fields, including the military, health care, power plants and industrial inspection. The U.S. Department of Energy provides generous funding that allows the College of Science and Mathematics to offer undergraduate physics and chemistry majors the opportunity to complete a nuclear concentration. Students interested in graduate school will have an advantage because a nuclear concentration option is uncommon in undergraduate education. Locally, nuclear industry expansion has fueled strong demand for nuclear scientists, including at DOE’s Savannah River Site.
