The major in Physics consists of a minimum core of physics and mathematics courses. It provides a rigorous background combined with maximum flexibility for students who have a strong interest in an additional field of study.
Program Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate mastery of the core concepts and general principles of physics
Demonstrate competent knowledge of the specific concepts, principles, and problems of each of the basic subfields and some areas of application in physics
Conduct experiments for a comparison with physical models and theories, and examine the results with the statistical methods of error analysis
Formulate, solve, and interpret problems by the use of physical principles, via mathematical and computational techniques
Major Requirements (58 units)
To qualify for graduation, a physics student must have achieved at least a 2.0 (C) cumulative grade point average and at least a 2.0 (C) average in all courses required for the major.
