Physics and Engineering

Majors

Physics, BA & BS
Study matter and energy, and observe how they interact while moving through space and time. Our rigorous program is designed to provide the math and physics foundation students need to excel in graduate school. The Bachelor of Arts option requires a foreign language. The Bachelor of Science requires additional technical electives.

Engineering Physics, BS 
Incorporating the studies of physics, engineering, and mathematics, our engineering physics degree explores how these three disciplines work together to solve real-world problems. Students gain hands-on experience that prepares them for careers in engineering, applied science, or applied physics.

Physics/Math Education, BS 
Students interested in teaching physics and math at a high school level can receive a licensure for grades 5-12 through our program. Learn to manage a classroom and effectively communicate subject matter to high school students. Students in this major must complete a semester of student teaching.

Physics Science Education, BS 
Students interested in teaching physics at a high school level earn licensure for grades 5-12 through our program. Physics science education students take a combination of math, science, and education courses, and may focus their electives to strengthen their understanding of a particular subject area. Students in this major must complete a semester of student teaching.

Environmental Engineering, BS
Study environmental engineering to learn how science and engineering principles can be applied to improve the natural environment. Students learn ways to enhance air, water, and land resources for human and organism habitation, as well as ways to rectify polluted sites.

Minor

Physics
Gain a deeper understanding of the way things work by minoring in physics. This minor is available to all students, but especially beneficial to students majoring in environmental or exercise science.
