Courses to total 120 credits for this degree
In addition to the minimum university-wide general education requirements.
- Students are thoroughly trained in the various sub-disciplines of physics. They have mastered the principles of mechanics, quantum mechanics, electromagnetic fields, thermal statics, and some advanced topics in physics, such as astrophysics and computational physics.
- Students can communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, their scientific observations and their interpretations of physical laws.
- Students are intellectually prepared to partake in physics research in a meaningful way.
