Degree Programs

The Physics Department offers two options and two pathways to teacher certification in Physics. The department also offers two General Engineering program options to arm students with a broad and foundational experience in engineering.

Physics Option I is the traditional physics major, designed principally for students who wish to pursue graduate study in physics and related fields. View the Physics Option I Four-Year Plan (PDF).

Physics Option II is for those who have interests in electronics. Many students in Option II take additional coursework in computer science. View the Physics Option II Four-Year Plan (PDF).

Physics Teaching certifies graduates to teach high school physics and physical science for grades 9-12. View the Physics Teaching Four-Year Plan (PDF).

Physical Science Teaching certifies graduates to teach high school physics, chemistry, and physical science for grades 9-12. View the Physical Science Teaching Four-Year Plan (PDF).

General Engineering Electronics Option is for students interested in fields such as electrical engineering. View the Engineering Electronics Option Four-Year Plan (PDF).

General Engineering Industrial Statistics Option is for students interested in industrial engineering. View the Engineering Industrial Statistics Option Four-Year Plan (PDF).
