Bachelor of Arts in Physics through the College of Education

  • The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Physics is designed for physics teachers and students with multidisciplinary interests.
  • This is a flexible track, and although there is a core of required courses, we can make adjustments to meet individual preferences.
  • The requirements are: PHY 201, 202, 203, 204, 320, 421, 447, 491/492 (capstone), and PS 325, 400 and 400L, plus three (3) additional upper (300 - 400) level physics elective courses, selected from the undergraduate catalog, and 2 hours of advanced labs, for a total of 36 credit hours.
  • Besides the Physics and Physical Science course requirements there are 9 credit hours Math requirements (MTH 122, 127 or 130, and 140) and 9 credit hours general College of Science requirements (CHM 211 and 217, GLY 200 and 210)
  • Endorsements in teaching for prospective physics teachers in secondary schools must conform to state licensure standards, which are subject to change.
  • Students are encouraged to work closely with an adviser from the education faculty to ensure that they meet the current requirements.
