¿Qué aprenderé?

The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers a multi track program of study which allows each student flexibility to choose a suitable set of courses that will prepare the student for their chosen career goal. With the assistance of physics faculty advisors each student will select a program of theoretical and experimental courses through which they will gain an understanding of the broad range of general principles which characterize the discipline of physics; and they will acquire the ability to apply theoretical and experimental techniques to solve a wide variety of problems.

Graduates will be prepared for highly technical post-baccalaureate employment in applied physics, engineering physics, and other scientific areas. Upon graduation students will also be prepared to enter programs of advanced study in physics, engineering, medicine, environmental science, and related disciplines. The department also offers courses which are cognate requirements in other disciplines and courses which satisfy general university requirements in the natural sciences. A

Fundamental Studies Option

The Fundamental Studies option is the traditional model for undergraduate physics which is still widely expected for acceptance to most graduate programs in physics in the United States. It provides a thorough exposure to the analytical and theoretical methods used in advanced physics. Students who pursue this path will develop strong mathematical skills to use in describing quantitatively the world around us. Not only will they be prepared for continued education in the sciences, but they will also have demonstrated many of the skills and traits valued in the job market today including quantitative and analytical reasoning, scientific communication, and a strong work ethic.

Applied Option

The student who is more interested in directly entering the job market may be more interested in the applied physics track. The Applied Physics option is geared toward the student who is interested in the practical application of the types of analytical thinking and problem solving that make physics unique. One options within applied physics is to focus on computational science. Computational techniques involve the modeling of extremely complex physical systems using computers. It is a vital skill in such fields as fluid mechanics, meteorology, and even finance. Computational science is not about programming but about finding the proper way to create a virtual model of the important parameters that govern the physical behavior of a system.

Individual Option

The individual option plan is meant to provide the flexibility needed for students to pursue interdisciplinary or unique plans of study. It requires completion of the core requirements and 25 additional physics or related credits above PHYS 260 approved by the student's advisor and department head.. The plan of study should be coherent and challenging and motivated toward a particular goal of study, not simply a collection of desired courses. Examples of individual option plans in the past have included ones geared toward biophysics, geophysics, and secondary school education.
