Physical Properties and Phenomena of the Natural World.
The Bachelor of Science in Physics program prepares students for careers in education, business, or industry, where analytical skills and a scientific background are advantageous, or for or graduate school in physics or related areas.
The degree can be earned without a concentration, or if desired, with a concentration in Applied and Engineering Physics, Astrophysics, or Computational Physics.
- Learn from student-oriented faculty members who are dynamic, well-known in their fields, and highly productive in research.
- Majors complete a research/internship/independent study experience via designated courses.
- Majors also complete a capstone course in experimental physics, observational astronomy, or computational physics, completing a project, making presentations, and learning professional-style writing.
