Program Goals

  • To provide students with a foundation in science with a concentration of course work appropriate for a physics major.
  • To prepare students to use theoretical principles and experimental equipment and to apply them to solve specific problems in physics and related areas.
  • To instill in the students a commitment to lifelong learning which fosters in them a desire to transfer credits to a baccalaureate program in physics, astronomy or any branch of engineering.
  • To provide students with a General Education foundation.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Explain the fundamental concepts of physics.
  2. Design and conduct experiments demonstrating physics principles.
  3. Apply mathematics to solve physics application problems.
