B.S. PHY - Major in Physics
THE BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN PHYSICS (B.S. PHY) Major in Physics 48-50 Credits
This degree program provides a strong foundation for careers in the rapidly developing high-technology industries. It is highly recommended as preparation for graduate work in physics. It also prepares students for graduate study in most engineering fields without requiring the early specialization, typical of undegraduate engineering programs, that can greatly reduce career options.
Course Requirements: Students must complete the Physics courses listed here. In addition, they must complete the following courses:
Six additional credits from the Advanced Lecture Electives courses listed above.
CHM 203/204 General Chemistry I with lab (4 credits), and
CHM 205/206 General Chemistry II with lab (4 credits)
(Or, choose two courses from the following:)
MTH 529 Linear Algebra (3 credits)
MTH 543 Numerical Analysis (3 credit)
MTH 545 Differential Equations (3 credits)
MTH 561 Mathematical Statistics I (3 credits)
Additional coursework in mathematics, computer science, chemistry, or other sciences is recommended. Courses selected will depend on specific career goals.
