The Department of Physics offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. Students preparing for either graduate study or a professional career in physics should pursue the Bachelor of Science degree. The interdisciplinary Bachelor of Science degree in the area of engineering physics is offered through the College of Engineering and Technology. Many research groups in the Department provide opportunities for undergraduates to participate in cutting-edge research.
The courses required for the Bachelor of Arts degree in physics offer a broader program in science and the liberal arts suitable for a variety of pre-professional curricula and for interdisciplinary studies in areas including biophysics, chemical physics, and geophysics. Students in this degree program should select elective courses in consultation with their advisers.
Pass/No Pass. Students must request permission from the Department to take major or minor courses for pass/no pass credit. Request forms are available in the Arts and Sciences Advising Center, 107 Oldfather Hall.
