Physics Major and Minor
The physics major at Seaver College offers a well-balanced curriculum in experimental and theoretical physics that prepares students pursuing careers in science, technology, and similarly quantitative fields as well as those seeking a graduate education in physics, engineering, or environmental science.
Students in the physics degree program have the opportunity for an undergraduate research experience that involves close collaboration with physics professors.
Most popular with math majors, our physics minor provides a basic introduction to physics and a foundation for careers requiring a background in mathematics and science. Students minoring in physics must earn between 23 and 24 units by completing four required courses and two additional courses.
