In addition to the core CMS requirements, students select three of the packages listed below. Packages for each concentration (chemistry, life science, earth and environmental science, computation sciences, and physics and astronomy) consist of a minimum of 9 upper-level credits. Students can only select one of the computational science packages, and one of the physics and astronomy packages.

## Physics CMS packagePhysics deals with matter and energy and the interactions between the two. It allows us to understand phenomena that take place around us and in the universe. Physical laws help us perceive our world. Some physicists use these principles in theoretical areas, such as the nature of time and the origin of the universe; others apply their physics knowledge to the development of advanced materials, electronic and optical devices and medical equipment. |

## Astronomy CMS packageAstronomy is a natural science that is the study of celestial objects (such as moons, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies), the physics, chemistry, mathematics, and evolution of such objects, and phenomena that originate outside the atmosphere of Earth, including supernovae explosions, gamma ray bursts, and cosmic background radiation. A related but distinct subject, cosmology, is concerned with studying the universe as a whole. |

## Mathematics CMS packageMathematics is a powerful tool for solving practical problems and a highly creative field of study, combining logic and precision with intuition and imagination. It is more than just numbers and rules for calculating with them. The basic goal of mathematics is to reveal and explain patterns - whether the pattern appears as electrical impulses in an animal's nervous system, as fluctuations in stock market prices, or as fine detail of an abstract geometric figure. |

## Statistics CMS packageStatistics is the branch of mathematics that deals with collecting, organizing and analyzing data. It allows us to see if observations about a particular phenomenon can be generalized and helps us make informed decisions based on thorough interpretation of data. Statisticians extract information from data. Nowadays, due to increased computer use, massive amounts of data are collected and, thus, statistics has become one of the most pervasive of all disciplines. |
