In the Department of Physics, we provide you the flexibility to pursue either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Physics. Each degree program explores:
These courses also will help hone your analytical, math and communication skills for careers working with students, clients and co-workers with backgrounds in other fields. As you progress toward your degree, you can specialize in condensed matter physics, optics, astrophysics or computer-based physics.
A bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of North Texas can lead to careers investigating these and many other areas important to our daily lives and understanding the world and universe.
A Bachelor of Science in Physics prepares a student to begin a research career by providing the basis (a solid core of upper-level coursework with research hours) for advanced study in a graduate program and to acquire hands-on skills for a career in industry.
The Bachelor of Arts provides the same introductory physics coursework as the BSP degree but has more flexibility in its upper-level physics requirements for students wanting to obtain a 2nd degree or concentration. This option is ideal for liberal arts/science-minded students or the student planning on teaching high school.
Physicists use math, problem solving experience, analytical skills and their imaginations to study the structure and interaction of matter and energy — the way things work. This information is important in:
Graduates are employed in various research and management careers in business, education, the armed forces, the government, national laboratories and NASA. For example, you may work for a company that develops new electronic devices, teach high school physics or work for a research laboratory furthering the exploration and use of space.
A major in Physics can also prepare you for medical school or a graduate program in Physics or a related field.
