B.S. in Physics (Pre-Health Care Concentration)

The Bachelor of Science in Physics provides a comprehensive curriculum that prepares students for graduate studies or careers in technology, medicine, education, law, finance, industry, and other professions.

The Pre-Health Care Concentration is specially designed for students with an interest in medicine, dentistry, or other health related professions, and it satisfies the medical/dental preprofessional program requirements.

Please refer to the BS Physics Pre-Health Care Planner for a suggested sequence of courses.
Note that many courses are offered only in the fall or only in the spring.
