The BA degree in physics with teaching certification is recommended for a career in secondary teaching.

To help physics graduates evaluate their academic progress and to aid the department in evaluating teaching effectiveness, each senior is required to:

  • Take the ETS Major Field Test in physics
  • Take the physics portion of the GRE if planning to apply to a graduate program in physics. A score above the 35th percentile is necessary for recommendation for graduate study.
  • Take PHYS 480 and do original research 
    as a prerequisite.
