¿Qué aprenderé?

A bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of North Texas can lead to careers investigating these and many other areas important to our daily lives and to understanding the world and universe.

Physicists use math, problem solving experience, analytical skills and their imaginations to study the structure and interaction of matter and energy the way things work. This information is important in:

  • Energy research such as the development of super batteries and solar cells
  • Medical diagnostics and therapy
  • Science-enabled education, law practice, technology business and journalism
  • Semiconductor and photonics technology
  • Space and atmospheric sciences

Graduates are employed in various research and management careers in business, education, the armed forces, the government, national laboratories and NASA. For example, you may work for a company that develops new electronic devices, teach high school physics or work for a research laboratory furthering the exploration and use of space.

Each degree program explores:

  • Laws of mechanics (how objects move)
  • Mathematical methods of physics
  • Physics of electrons, photons, atoms and nuclei
  • Principles of electricity and magnetism
  • Properties of heat and energy
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Statistical and thermal physics
  • The physics of materials

These courses also will help hone your analytical, math and communication skills for careers working with students, clients and co-workers with backgrounds in other fields. As you progress toward your degree, you can specialize in condensed matter physics, optics, astrophysics or computer-based physics.

The low student-to-faculty ratio in upper-level courses allows you to receive personal attention from faculty members and to interact closely with your peers.

Gain new perspectives

Many faculty members are internationally known in their fields. Their expertise includes:

  • Computational simulation of materials and their electronic, thermoelectric and optical properties
  • Creation of novel, nanostructured optical materials
  • Experimental and theoretical atomic physics
  • Ion beam modification and analysis of technologically relevant and biological materials
  • Modeling of the human brain and other types of networks
  • Observation and modeling of active galactic nuclei
  • Spectroscopy of semiconductors and biological materials to learn their function and create novel ones

Because of this research activity, undergraduates are often involved in groundbreaking projects conducted in our state-of-the-art facilities.

Research facilities include the:

  • Atomic Scattering Physics Laboratory
  • Center for Nonlinear Science
  • Ion Beam Modification and Analysis Laboratory
  • Monroe Robotic Observatory
  • Nanoscale Materials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory
  • Polymer Gels and Hydrogels Research Laboratory
  • Precision Atomic Physics Measurements Laboratory
  • Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Laboratory
  • Semiconductor Materials and Devices Characterization Laboratory
  • 2-D and 3-D Photonic Materials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory
  • Ultrafast Spectroscopy and Nanophotonics Laboratory

What to expect

The degree requirements may vary depending on the bachelor’s degree you pursue. In addition to necessary physics courses, both degree programs require chemistry and math courses. The Bachelor of Science degree has two options that include an additional computer science course requirement.
