Physics (all majors/specializations) is now capped. For advice/assistance in declaring a physics major please contact the Physics Undergraduate Advisor.

The Department of Physics offers undergraduate programs leading to the following degrees:

  • BS, Physics
  • BS, Physics with Specialization in Astrophysics
  • BS, Physics with Specialization in Biophysics
  • BS, Physics with Specialization in Computational Physics
  • BS, Physics with Specialization in Earth Sciences
  • BS, Physics with Specialization in Materials Physics
  • BA, General Physics
  • BA, General Physics/Secondary Education

The physics major provides a core of basic education in several principal areas of physics, with sufficient flexibility to allow students to prepare either for graduate school or a career in industry. Since in preparing for either goal, more than the required core courses are necessary, it is important for students to meet with a physics department adviser in deciding a schedule.
