Training in the use of mathematical techniques applicable to physics problems encountered in upper-level physics courses. Vector operators, Fourier analysis, frequently used differential equations (ordinary and partial), orthogonal functions, and matrix methods of coordinate transformation are included. Emphasis is given to solving problems from mechanics such as vectoral mechanics, oscillatory systems, wave motion, potential theory, etc.

Prerequisite(s)/Corequisite(s): MATH 1950, MATH 1960, MATH 1970 and PHYS 2160 or 2120 or permission.

Physics, Bachelor of Arts

To obtain a B.A. with a major in Physics, a student must fulfill university, college, and departmental requirements. Hour requirements follow:

Physics, Bachelor of Science

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in physics is offered with three different options for students to follow: Option I is for the student who intends to go on to graduate school in physics; Option II allows for the degree to to be enhanced by a second discipline; and finally, the Bachelor of Science in physics with a concentration in education leads to a physics teaching certificate at the secondary-school level. To help the prospective physics majors make optimal decisions, they are encouraged to speak with a departmental adviser as early as possible.
