The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers training in physics leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. The B.A. curriculum provides the student with a firm foundation in physics but allows great flexibility in the choice of a large number of elective courses. Thus, the person with a B.A. in physics will not have a full complement of undergraduate physics courses but will be able to acquire an in-depth knowledge of at least one other major academic area of his or her choice. A B.A. in physics provides excellent preparation for a career in physics teaching. The B.S. curriculum is designed primarily for students who intend to pursue graduate work in physics or other highly technical fields or for those who intend to go directly into industrial positions as professional physicists.
