At CSUEB students can choose between a Physics, B.S. , Physics, B.A. degree, or a Physics Minor.
The B.S. degree offers a comprehensive curriculum with a hands-on philosophy to learning that includes numerous laboratory courses and a strong emphasis on undergraduate research with faculty. The Physics, B.S. degree major program is designed to give students an in-depth and focused understanding of the fundamentals of physics including concepts of classical mechanics, wave motion and sound, electromagnetism and optics, heat and thermodynamics, relativity, quantum mechanics, and elementary particles and their interactions. The program prepares students for graduate school in Physics and is also an excellent foundation for other professional schools. The Physics B.S. program also prepares students for careers in basic research, defense industry, clean energy, science education, and all technology-related sectors.
The B.A. degree also provides hands-on learning with lab-based coursework but requires fewer courses, and as such the B.A. program can be finished in an accelerated timeframe. The B.A. program still provides enough experience and breadth of study so that students are well prepared for careers in basic research, defense industry, clean energy, science education, and all technology-related sectors.
