Department of Physics

The Department of Physics offers four programs in physics leading to the B.S. degree. A student contemplating a physics major should arrange for an early interview with the department, so that his or her interest and future career can be considered in the planning of the program.

In addition to the requirements described below for each program, the distribution and general requirements listed in the catalog should be fulfilled. A student planning a physics major is encouraged to take a year of college calculus as early as possible.
