The department offers several tracks to the bachelor’s degree in physics. In addition, the department offers minor and certificate options. They have rather different goals and provide for a wide range of possible activities after graduation. The BS in Physics program is designed for those who wish to use their knowledge of physics professionally. A minimum program is specified which provides the student with a mastery of essential aspects of physics and related areas. The PhD program is designed to provide students with a broad experimental, observational, and/or theoretical foundation for successful careers as scientists. Completion of the requirements for the Masters in Science degree coincides with the pursuit of a PhD, requiring 30 credits to complete.
