Program Overview

The BS in Physics program provides instruction in each major area of physics. Graduates are well prepared to enter graduate programs in physics, professional programs, or begin employment in any of a variety of areas. Upon completion of Calculus I, students are ready to begin the 2-semester introductory physics coursework.  The advanced physics coursework is completed in the junior and senior years.  Most of the advanced courses are currently offered only every other year, thus the juniors and seniors take the advanced courses together.  Many majors participate in undergraduate research projects and present results at professional meeting.  The physics faculty work closely with the majors to advise and mentor them through the program.
