For the Declaration of Major Form, contact the department:


The BA program offers a core physics curriculum at a less rigorous level than the BS and BS Applied programs.  All the physics major programs would be well suited for students preparing to enter medicine, dentistry, law, business, secondary school teaching, and multidisciplinary fields of science and mathematics.  However, the BA programs have fewer course requirements and require less advanced mathematics, which can facilitate for the completion of a physics major when the full BS degrees requirements do not fit a students schedule or interest. 

Required: Physics 151, 152, 211, 253, 254 (or 361 and 365), four four-hour physics courses approved by the departmental adviser, and Mathematics 111 and 112.
