Mathematics and Physics Department
General Physics Program
The general concentration is intended to give the student a foundation upon which to continue the study of physics in graduate school or to pursue a career as a professional scientist. Students must complete: 36 semester hours of specified physics courses above the 100 level and 25 hours of support courses in mathematics, chemistry, biology, and computer science. The required mathematics courses are above the level of Calculus II.
Material Science Program
The material science concentration affords the student the opportunity for the study of materials using a core of courses in physics, and a select set of courses in chemistry and engineering technology. This course study will prepare the student for continued study of materials in graduate school or to pursue a career in the discipline upon completing the baccalaureate degree.
