The Bachelor of Science is designed as a terminal degree.
Students who are considering graduate school studies should
plan on taking additional course work. Students should
be able to work out a four-year course of study with their
advisor that will satisfy graduate school requirements.

Majors in physics are expected to achieve a familiarity
with computer programming.
Students planning on majoring in physics and attending
should meet with a Physics faculty member
as early as possible to discuss course scheduling and potential
course substitutions for particular degree requirements. Students
may rather elect to earn a B.A. Physics degree. The basic degree
requirements for the B.A. Physics degree are essentially the
same as the B.S. Physics degree except that rather than choosing
two additional upper division PHYS courses, as the B.S. degree
requires, the B.A. degree requires two courses from any area that
are agreed to by the department chair. The B.A. Physics degree is
intended to better allow College of Arts and Sciences
students to complete double majors, therefore, students who
earn a B.A. Physics degree must also be earning a B.A. degree
in another College of Arts and Sciences department.
