Physics Program Outcomes
The Department of Physics offers undergraduate programs leading to Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics and in Applied Physics, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Physics for students seeking flexibility in planning a liberal arts program. The Department also offers a graduate program in Physics leading the Master of Science degree. The primary objective of the programs is to prepare students for careers or further study in physics or related technical fields.
Students earning the Bachelor of Science degree in Physics or Applied Physics will be able to:
1) Comprehension: Explain the core physics concepts and their mathematical expressions.
2) Application: apply the laws of physics to new situations, both qualitatively and quantitatively
3) Execution: Design, set-up, and carry out an experiment, using models, analytical techniques, or laboratory equipment
4) Communication: Communicate scientific ideas to technical and non-technical audiences
