The Bachelor of Science with a Physics major is designed for students who wish to pursue professional or graduate work in physics or a related area. Students in this major can choose between three tracks.
- The professional track provides a strong foundation for graduate work.
- The industrial physics track prepares students for careers in industry that require a strong background in physics. The first three years of the industrial physics track mirrors the first three years of the Engineering Transfer Program.
- The earth and space science track provides a strong base for future study in one or more of the Earth and space sciences (astronomy, geology, meteorology and oceanography).
The Bachelor of Arts with a physics major is designed for students who seek a broad background in physics, possibly coordinated with a major in a related field. Students who wish to pursue a graduate degree in physics, astronomy, geology, meteorology, oceanography or engineering, are advised to complete the Bachelor of Science with a physics major instead.
Note: The requirements for this major are the same as the content portion of the Bachelor of Science with a physics (secondary education) major.
