# 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.

**Lower Division Major Requirements common to both majors**
