The BS in applied physics complements the BS degree with two applied physics courses*, specifically Digital Electronics and Computational Physics.  As with the BS degree, the program offers a broad and deep background in fundamental physics and the accompanying mathematics.  The additional courses provide students to learn about areas of current technological interest such as digital electronics and microprocessors and computational physics techniques.  

* Note: Students completing the BS degree in physics and these two courses may choose whether they prefer Physics or Applied Physics as a major.

Required: Physics 151, 152, 234, 253, 320, 361, 365, 421, 432, 436, 444, 461, and Mathematics 111, 112, 211, and 212.
