Physics Majors
Lower Division Curriculum for the Bachelor of Science
- Physics major
- Engineering Physics major
The Frank R. Seaver College of Science and Engineering offers curricula leading to the Bachelor of Science in Physics and the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics. Students must complete 43 semester hours of coursework that is common to both majors. The major in Engineering Physics requires a further 12 semester hours in electrical and general engineering.
University Core Requirements for pre-Fall 2015 transfer students
Students complete 30-36 semester hours of general University Core requirements according to their major requirements. Use these links to access the Core requirements for each major:
