Core Curriculum (44 credits):

Complete one of the concentrations to fulfill program requirements:

Chemical Physics Concentration (19 credits):

Chemical physics focuses on areas where the techniques of chemistry and physics are brought together for the study of atoms and molecules; their interactions in gases, liquids, and solids; and the detailed structure and dynamics of material changes. Chemical physicists are employed by a wide range of businesses, particularly the pharmaceutical, photographic, and microelectronic industries.

Engineering Physics Concentration (19 credits)

The engineering physics concentration focuses on applying the principles of physics to developing new technologies and solving interdisciplinary engineering problems. Graduates may pursue an advanced degree in applied physics or engineering, or function as productive engineering professionals.

Professional Physics Concentration (21 credits):

This concentration is built around the physics core curriculum to supply the background and experience needed to enter graduate studies or become a research physicist.
