Degree Requirements

The department offers two degrees, one major and one minor:

  • Bachelor of Science, Physics major
  • Bachelor of Arts, Physics major
  • Minor in Physics

Please reference the 2019-2020 Undergraduate Catalog for course requirements specific to the Physics Department major and minor.

  • Students are expected to declare their major in this area in their freshman year.
  • Students in their sophomore year and students in the Florence program can be accommodated by special arrangement with the department.
  • The B.A. physics degree is intended to better allow College of Arts and Sciences students to complete double majors, therefore, students who earn a B.A. physics degree must also be earning a B.A. degree in another College of Arts and Sciences department.
  • Summer research opportunities within the department, as well as with other programs, such as Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs, are encouraged.
