Program Highlights

Because of the myriad options that students with physics degrees have after graduation, you will choose a program of courses that will best serve your post-graduation plans. If you plan on advanced work in physics, engineering, or astrophysics, your coursework would be heavier on physics and mathematics. On the other hand, if you want to pursue a career in another field, but still want all the advantages of a strong background in physics, you would take a core group of physics courses as well as certain upper-level courses in other areas.

Areas of concentration

Each student will have a choice of how to complete their major. In consultation with their advisor, they will choose at least 9 additional hours at the 300 level or higher which best fit the student’s career goals. Concentration options include:

  1. Graduate school in physics
  2. Pre-medicine
  3. Business and consulting
