Physics Degree Program:
The undergraduate physics program at the University of Minnesota School of Physics and Astronomy offers a flexible, real-world approach to the physics major. We recognize that there are many reasons to pursue a physics degree. We offer physics major programs that prepare you for careers in engineering and applied physics, computer applications, secondary school teaching, or biomedical sciences as well as one that gives an excellent preparation of physics graduate work.
Students can focus in one of six areas of emphasis: professional physics, physics for engineering, physics for biology, physics for teaching, physics for computation or materials. All of these degree tracks include a strong core curriculum which is combined with more advanced physics courses and courses from other disciplines. Each program leads to a Bachelor of Science Physics degree, and each of these tracks includes options to help you select courses tailored to your specific needs by the careful choice of technical electives chosen in consultation with your physics advisor.
We also offer a Bachelor of Arts in Physics in the College of Liberal Arts, an even more flexible degree, which provides students with a chance to study physics in a liberal arts context. All physics degrees require 120 credits including all requirements and electives.
