  • Objectives
    The B.Sc. (Major) provides an education in the fundamentals of Physics and allows you to take a Minor in another discipline. Programs such as Computer Science are often chosen as a Minor in combination with Physics, though any department offering a Minor is possible. It is a 20.0 credit program.
