B.S. in Physics
The program of study in physics leading to a Bachelor of Science degree provides students with the opportunity to pursue a major field of concentration in physics with the necessary specialization to succeed in a wide array of post-baccalaureate opportunities. The following degree tracks include the course work and experience necessary for student success. See an academic advisor in the CSM Advising Center for specific course information and important aspects of each of these tracks.Apply Now
General Physics TrackPhysics is the study of matter, motion, force and energy across space and time. This area of study is wide-ranging and math-intensive; students who earn Bachelor’s degrees in physics develop broad analytical skills and are well prepared to pursue graduate education in physics or related areas of study. Other graduates pursue careers in the engineering, computer science or other STEM-related areas.
Electrical Engineering TrackThis BS degree with a concentration in electrical engineering combines the study of physics with 32 credit hours of courses in electrical engineering, plus courses in solid state physics and engineering statics, thus further broadening the students’ analytical skills. In addition, adding electrical engineering courses will increase the marketability of the physics student.
Mechanical Engineering TrackThis BS degree with a concentration in mechanical engineering combines the study of physics with 30 credit hours of courses in mechanical engineering. This curriculum design helps to further broaden the students’ analytical skills. In addition, adding skills developed in mechanical engineering courses will increase the marketability of the physics student.
