Bachelor of Science in Physics
The Department of Physics offers a major in physics with five program concentrations leading to a B. S. degree and the B. S. degree with honors.
- Concentration A (Research) is designed primarily for students preparing to do graduate study in physics and related fields or for students preparing to work professionally upon completion of the B. S. degree in various technical fields requiring the strongest preparation in physics.
- Concentration B (Professional) is designed for students who wish to create a specialized program of study which combines a strong foundation in physics with strong preparation in another field. Such other fields include engineering, medicine, computer science, business, and communications, to name a few.
- Concentration C (Education) is designed for students who are preparing to be high school physics teachers. This curriculum provides a solid foundation in both contemporary physics and in education pedagogy.

- First year students (Freshman and Transfer) should enroll in STEM 101. This in-class experience requires completion of the following clearance form:
- Concentration D is a five-year, dual degree program in physics and electrical engineering. Students will receive a B.S. and B.S.E.E. upon graduation. Track D provides the highest level of preparation for both graduate school and positions in industry.
- Concentration E is a five-year Bachelor of Science in physics and Master of Business Administration dual degree program. After students have satisfactorily completed their undergraduate requirements, they complete 30 credit hours in the M.B.A. program.
