Degree Type


To provide background in basic physics preparing students for entry into graduate school engineering programs, or technical jobs; to stress applications of analytical software and mathematical techniques.

The senior project may consist of satisfactory performance on the Advanced Physics section of the Graduate Record Examination, successful completion of an internship or a sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates, or a comprehensive examination given during the first term of the senior year.

Three Additional Upper Division Courses in Physics

Chosen in consultation with the advisor. CHEM 320 can be counted as equivalent to one upper division physics course. Physics courses should be at the 300 or 400 level.

More than three additional classes are strongly recommended for students planning on pursuing graduate studies. Consult your academic advisor.
