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.
Taken from Undergraduate Catalog 2012-2013
The BA degree in physics requires 30 hours of physics courses, plus General Education requirements and electives.
