The Department of Physics offers a flexible assortment of course work, laboratories, and guided research. Its laboratories are complemented by a variety of general and specialized apparatus; computers are employed in most aspects of experimentation and analysis, at all levels.The B.A. in Physics is intended to supplement a liberal arts curriculum and is suitable preparation for continued study in a variety of professional programs. Both B.S. Physics degree options (Physics and Engineering Physics) offer routes to professional careers in industry and/or graduate study in physics, engineering, or related specialties.
Note: The two B.S. Physics options are very similar in their first two years, and they closely resemble the pre-engineering curriculum. Students are advised to keep all these options open until they have refined their interests and explored available career opportunities.
See Section II, Enrollment for required high school preparation.Recommended High School Courses
