Bachelor of Science in Physics, Option #1
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees in physics are offered with three different options for students to follow: Option I is for the student who intends to go on to graduate school in physics; Option II allows for the degree to be enhanced by a second discipline; and finally, a Bachelor of Science in physics with a concentration in education leads to a physics teaching certificate at the secondary-school level. To help the prospective physics majors make optimal decisions, they are encouraged to speak with a departmental adviser as early as possible.
Introductory physics and math courses:
(Students taking a number of 2000-level mathematics courses may be permitted to waive Physics 3250 or Physics 3260.)
Physics core courses:
Three advanced laboratories (choose three from the following list):
Additional requirements for Option #1:
In addition to the above requirements, a senior project is also required. Please see more details about the senior project in the “Other Information” portion of the physics section.
