B.S. Degree, Major in Physics, Area of Emphasis in Applied Physics

  • The Area of Emphasis in applied physics is designed for those who are interested in future study or work in applied physics or engineering fields.
  • The requirements are: PHY 211, 202, 213, 204, 300, 308, 320, 330, 421, 442, 445, 491/492 (capstone), IST 236 and 238, plus six (6) additional semester hours of 300-400 courses selected from the catalog, including two (2) hours of advanced laboratory. We recommend 3 hours physics courses (PHY 425 suggested) and 3 hours IST/EE courses (IST 303 suggested).
  • The AoE also includes CHM 211 and 217, IST 163, and EE 111, which will fulfill the college requirements of eight hours in a second/third science, so that these are not an extra requirement.
  • The math requirements are: MTH 229, 230, 231, and 335.
