Majors and Minors (PHY)

Majors and Minors (PHY)

Our department offers a B.A. Degree with a Major in Physics, a Minor in Physics, and a B.S. with a Major in Engineering Physics. Students who elect to major in Physics and Engineering Physics find that the foundation in fundamental principles and experimental techniques is an excellent preparation for graduate work in the pure or applied sciences, engineering, other professional fields, or for direct entry into the job market. The Physics program strongly recommends that students who are interested in majoring in Physics or Engineering Physics talk with one of the Physics Program faculty as early as possible.

Students should earn a grade of C or higher in PHY 221, PHY 222, and MAT 135 (or waiver) in order to be admitted into the major.
