The BS degree in biophysics should be considered by students planning on advanced study in the fields of medicine, biophysics, physiology, radiation biology, and bioengineering, particularly in view of a career in medical research.
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.
