Program Description

The B.A. in physics program imparts an understanding of fundamental branches of physics, such as classical mechanics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics, optics, and quantum mechanics, and relativity. In addition, the student will be able to minor in any one of several fields. The primary purpose of this program is to prepare students for a career in many different fields, such as secondary education, software engineering, quality control, and business. Graduates of the physics B.A. program are strongly suited for a career in medicine, finance, education, or law, with physics majors having the highest aggregate scores on the MCAT and LSAT exams. The degree program may include a minor in any of the fields of interest, such as pre-professional biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics/science education.

Program Requirements

In addition to the University's general requirements, students seeking the BA in Physics must meet the requirements listed within the course catalog. Students should consult with their Physics department advisor for courses which may satisfy both the General Education requirements and common prerequisites. A grade of C or better is required in all prerequisite courses. A grade of C- or better is required for terminating courses.
