B.S. in Physics (Computational Physics 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 Computational Physics Concentration emphasizes interdisciplinary coursework in physics and computer science, and it is geared toward students with an interest in computational physics.
Please refer to the BS Physics Computational Physics Planner for a suggested sequence of courses.
Note that many courses are offered only in the fall or only in the spring.
