Bachelor of Science with a Major in Physics Science undergraduates may choose from two different majors within the Department of Physics: Physics and Physics in Medicine . The course sequences in these two programs are designed to accommodate the academic and professional interests of the majority of physics majors. The basic physics major is a particularly flexible option for students, and is the one that will be chosen by the majority of undergraduates majoring in the Department. The schedule of physics courses is designed to allow the physics major the option of studying abroad for the Spring semester of the Junior year. Students following the physics major program will gain a basic broad understanding of the concepts of physics. Depth is gained through the optional addition of one or more concentration programs offered through the department. Two of these concentration programs, Advanced Physics and Astrophysics , help to prepare the student for graduate work in physics, astronomy, or astrophysics. The Applied Physics concentration allows the student to combine the physics major with a sequence of courses in a particular engineering discipline. Completion of these concentrations is indicated on the st udent’s final transcript. Students with interests in other areas have time to explore second major, minor, or concentration options offered through departments in the Colleges of Science or Arts & Letters. Students with interests in alternative advanced Physics courses should discuss these with the Director of Undergraduate Studies. While no supplemental concentration is required of Physics majors, interested students are allowed and encouraged to add as many concentrations as their schedules and interests allow. Students following the Physics in Medicine major are not allowed to add concentrations; the major program is already designed to accommodate the special interests of those students intending careers in medicine. Physics as a Second Major is an option for students in the Colleges of Engineering, Arts & Letters, or Business.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
