Physics Majors

The B.S. (Bachelor of Science) degree in physics demands the most intense concentration of physics and mathematics. Students graduating with the B.S. in Physics go on to graduate school in physics and engineering, and also go directly into the technical workplace.

The B.S.Ed. (Bachelor of Science in Education)  This degree is designed for students who wish to become physics teachers. The material is similar to our BS degree with the addition of the required education classes. A block of education classes during sophomore year and then a senior year filled with education classes in the first semester and student teaching in the second semester. Graduates with the B.S.E. degree often have their choice of job placement since physics teachers are in high demand.
