The Department of Physics offers a program of studyleading to the Bachelor of Science degree, as well as a minor. The program is one of the largest in the nation, with over 60 majors graduating every year.

Recent graduates have continued to further studies in physics and other fields (such as astronomy, medicine, teaching, law, business, biology, or engineering). Currently, about half of the graduates join the private sector in a variety of technical occupations where analytical, computational, and problem-solving skills are highly valued.

We encourage our undergraduates to join research groups early on to fulfill the requirements of research/independent study credits and to establish contacts with graduate students and faculty.
