  • Study Level Bachelors
  • Duration 48 months
This program is designed to prepare students not only for advanced graduate studies in physics or a related field, but also for employment upon graduation in physics and other disciplines related to science and technology. Basic courses give the student a solid foundation in the concepts of classical and modern physics, and assist the students in developing their analytical reasoning and problem-solving skills. Laboratory courses complement this experience with an opportunity to develop experimental skills and a working knowledge of advanced technology. Students are strongly encouraged to further develop all these skills by participating in advanced experimental, analytical, or computational research under the supervision of faculty mentors. The minimum requirements for the B.S. degree with a major in Physics include 45 credits in Physics, as described below, and additional co-requisites in Mathematics and other sciences. Physics requirements: •PHYS2200 Introductory Physics I •PHYS2201 Introductory Physics II •PHYS2050 Introductory Physics Lab I •PHYS2051 Introductory Physics Lab II •PHYS3100 Vibrations and Waves •PHYS3300 Modern Physics •PHYS3510 Contemporary Electronics Laboratory •PHYS4100 Mechanics •PHYS4200 Electricity and Magnetism •PHYS4400 Quantum Physics I •PHYS4401 Quantum Physics II •PHYS4600 Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics •At least three credits of an advanced laboratory course, chosen from: PHYS4300 Numerical Methods and Scientific Computing (Spring: 4 credits) PHY4951 Senior Thesis PHYS4350 Experiments in Physics.
