The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in physics provides a basic core of physics courses and is most appropriate for students pursuing dual majors where the second major may be engineering, mathematics, computer science, or education with an emphasis on physical sciences. The Bachelor of Arts in physics requires 37 credit hours of physics or astronomy courses (plus 24 hours of additional required courses in related fields). General graduation requirements include 45 hours of 300- or 400-level courses, so students seeking the Bachelor of Arts in physics need to take at least 14 hours of 300- or 400-level courses in addition to the courses required for the degree. Students should choose these courses in consultation with their advisor, but additional elective courses in physics, computer science, and mathematics are highly recommended.
A student pursing a B.S. in Phyiscs has to complete a minor or a focus.
