Bachelor of Arts - Physics The Bachelor of Arts degree program requires fewer advanced courses in Physics and Mathematics than are required for the three Bachelor of Science programs. Students complete six courses in Physics and four in Mathematics, which allows time for a student to develop greater breadth in other areas as is appropriate for a high school physical science teaching credential. Thus, this degree is at present limited to students in the secondary school teaching track. (Students interested in teaching credential programs with physics or physical sciences emphasis can obtain the Teaching Credential Major sheet from the Office of Admissions.) Conceptual and Analytical Capabilities • Map physical problems into a set of equations and solve them using analytical/numerical methods. • Identify the relevant physical principles that govern the dynamics of physical problems and obtain solutions for these problems in the areas of (1) classical mechanics, (2) electromagnetism, (3) statistical mechanics, and (4) quantum mechanics/special relativity. Inquiry and Research Capabilities • Propose a research project, complete the necessary theoretical background study required for the project, design an experiment or write a computer program for performing necessary calculation/ simulation, and analyze the results to verify/nullify the hypothesis. Communication Capabilities • Make clear and effective presentations of research projects in both written and oral form. Bachelor of Arts Major in Physics Students must complete a minimum of 124 units with a Pacific cumulative and major/program grade point average of 2.0 in order to earn the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in physics.
