BA in Physics

The Bachelor of Arts in Physics prepares students who are interested in physics and planning to enter professional schools in business, education, journalism, law, and medicine, as well as liberal arts students desiring a strong background in physical science but with career objectives in other areas.

This flexible program offers the opportunity for parallel studies in another discipline and/or pre-professional preparation. Students may choose to follow the standard BA or choose a specific area of emphasis: the Biophysics Concentration, the Business Concentration, or the Entrepreneurship Concentration. Students interested in careers as professional physicists or graduate study in physics should pursue the Bachelor of Science in Physics.
