Major Information

  • Students are required to know and track their degree requirements for graduation or for entrance to a professional school.
  • In addition to the Core General Education requirements, the College of Science requires 3 hours of Calculus, and 40 hours of upper level credit.
  • Coursework listed as “elective” may vary for each student. Students are encouraged to use elective hours toward a minor or toward prerequisites.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to select courses that meet two or more Core or College requirements. For example, a writing intensive literature course could satisfy the Core II humanities requirement as well as the university writing intensive requirement.
  • Course offerings and course attributes are subject to change each semester. Please consult each semester’s schedule of courses for availability and attributes.
  • Math is based on an ACT Mathematics score of 27 or higher. Students with an ACT Mathematics score less than 27 will be placed in the appropriate prerequisite mathematics and science courses.
  • In order to graduate, students must maintain a 2.00 Overall GPA and receive a grade of C or better in each course required for the major.

Four Year Plan

A course of study in physics, resulting in a B.S. degree in physics, prepares students for a wide variety of opportunities, such as engineering careers in the private sector, careers in the health professions, employment in industry and government laboratories, advanced technology jobs in science and technology related fields, and careers as science teachers. The B.S. degree program is also excellent preparation for advanced degrees in physics, astronomy, engineering, medicine, or law. Medical Physics is designed for those who are interested in future study or work in Medical Imaging or Medical Physics.
