Academic Programs

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Physics

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in physics provides a thorough foundation in the core branches of physics. This degree plan includes two semesters each of upper-level classical mechanics, electromagnetism and quantum mechanics, as well as upper-level courses in thermodynamics and experimental physics. The B.S. degree is the best choice if you plan to continue on to graduate study in physics.

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Physics

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) curriculum has a more flexible course of study for students who desire an interdisciplinary program with an emphasis in physics. This program may interest students who wish to double major.


The department also offers a minor in physics, open to students in any field except physics. Learn more about the physics minor.
