A major curriculum is offered in physics leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics. A student may pursue the conventional physics major, or physics major with an emphasis in engineering, or a double major curriculum. The department of physics also offers a minor in physics with an emphasis in biology, engineering and mathematics.
The mission of the department is to provide quality education leading to the B.S. degree in Physics, Engineering and other disciplines, and to prepare undergraduate students for graduate studies. The objective of the department is to give the student basic training in the general concepts and principles of physics, and to provide an adequate foundation and background in physics as well as a liberal education. In the four-year curriculum, sufficient training is provided so that the student after graduation has career opportunities in physics and science related fields and opportunities for advanced studies.
The courses offered in Physical Science are designed to provide a broad understanding of the unifying principles of the field of physical science in general. These courses are designed for those students who do not pursue science as a major.
