The Physics Department at Marquette offers courses that prepare students for graduate study in physics as well as employment and further study in a variety of fields. Students achieve a general understanding of leading edge computational, theoretical and experimental approaches to explaining diverse natural phenomena from sub atomic particles to exotic stars and galaxies. The methods of physics develop powerful problem solving skills that find application in many disciplines. Physics graduates can go on to graduate study in areas as diverse as medicine, law, engineering and finance, as well as mainstream areas of physics such as particle physics, astrophysics, solid state, atomic and molecular physics. Minors are offered in Astrophysics and Biophysics. In addition, together with the Graduate School of Management, the Department of Physics offers a five-year B.S./M.B.A. accelerated degree program. The major in biophysics consists of 50 credit hours. Students complete the common physics core: one required physics core sequence of two courses (8 credit hours) and five required physics core courses (15 credit hours); one required biology core sequence (6 credit hours), and three required biology courses (9 credit hours); six credit hours of approved physics electives from Group A and six additional credit hours of approved upper division electives in either biology, chemistry, mathematics, or physics, taken from Groups A and B, listed below. In addition, students complete four required mathematics courses (16 credit hours), and four required chemistry courses (16 credit hours) for a total of 32 credit hours of background course work.
