Degree Programs

The Majors

The Physics department offers both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. Both degrees offer training in the fundamentals of physics, from classical mechanics to quantum mechanics. We strongly recommend students begin either major with General Physics I as early as possible (ideally, during their first semester). Four years from the beginning of the General Physics sequence is required to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree. The Bachelor of Arts degree can be completed in three years, but allowing four years is preferable.

The Minors

For students who are interested in physics or astronomy, but majoring in something else, we offer a physics minor and an astronomy minor.

Single Subject Teaching Credential

Students interested in teaching physics at the high school level can combine a physics degree with a Single Subject Teaching Credential.
