B.S. with Areas of Emphasis in Medical Physics

  • The Area of Emphasis in Medical Physics is designed for those who are interested in going to the medical school, pursue future study in medicine research, or work in a biomedical physics field.
  • The requirements are: PHY 211, 202, 213, 204, 300, 308, 320, 330, 421, 491/492 (capstone), plus Chemistry 355, 356, 361.
  • Eight (8) additional elective 300-400 courses selected from the catalog are required. We recommend 4 hours physics courses (PHY 350 suggested) and 4 hours BSC curses (BSC 322 suggested).
  • The AoE also includes CHM 211 and 217, 212 and 218, plus BSC 120 and 121, 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, and 231.
  • A 2.00 overall GPA and a 2.00 Major GPA is required to graduate
