The undergraduate program in Physics offers students the opportunity to understand the fundamental laws of nature. The flexibility provided by several field options enables students to pursue subsequent professional work in physics or astrophysics, as well as in applied physics in areas such as electronics, medicine, or computational physics.
Physics students are expected to appreciate knowledge in fields other than physics. They are encouraged to develop interests through courses offered by other departments and to deepen this interest in one disciplinary area by selecting courses in a specific distribution field.
The Physics Department collaborates with all engineering and science departments in offering double-major programs to graduates and undergraduate students with a GPA of 3.00 or above. The students may at the same time earn a degree in physics by successfully completing a prescribed list of courses.
