The Department of Physics offers a program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree. An undergraduate minor is also available.

The goals of the Physics program are to:

  1. provide students with a solid foundation in classical and modern physics;
  2. develop skills which enable students to enter careers in business, teaching, research, and technology;
  3. prepare students for graduate study in physics.

Courses offered at the 100 level are for non-majors, and can be used to fulfill General Education program requirements, and require minimal math preparation.
