Undergraduate students have an opportunity to pursue a degree in Physics through the College of Arts and Sciences or through the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences. Students must apply to the College of Engineering & Applied Sciences in order to earn an Engineering Physics degree. Degrees in Astrophysics and Geophysics are coordinated between the Physics Department, the Geology Department and the Astronomy and Planetary Sciences (APS) Department within the College of Arts and Sciences.
Students may not earn a bachelor’s degree in Physics from the College of Arts & Sciences as well as a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Physics from the College of Engineering & Applied Science. Furthermore, the Physics minor may not be earned with either of these two baccalaureate programs.
