Undergraduate Programs We Offer

B.S. in Physics

B.A. in Physics

Minors in Physics and Astronomy

A typical four-year plan for our B.S. in Physics program, might look something like this.

We're dedicated to high standards, hard work and a quality outcome. The successful careers of our graduates are evidence that our physics majors get a great education. We offer high-quality courses and great opportunities for practical experience in research. This ability to conduct research means our junior and senior students become increasingly passionate about their field and develop the skills to become a true professional.

Many undergraduates participate in research and we emphasize the importance of this experience. It also helps our faculty as they further their expertise in teaching and in their research field. Students at all levels benefit from a greater depth of course knowledge and our graduate students act as great mentors while assisting faculty with classes to ensure students get the attention they need.

Programs in Development

We are developing tracks in Astronomy and Biophysics, and hope to start offering them in 2017.  We're also phasing out our Applied Physics program in favor of a new Engineering Physics program currently in development.
