Overview

The B.S. degree gives students an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of physics with training in theoretical, computational, and experimental treatments of physics principles, phenomena, and applications.   Students are also encouraged to get involved in research activities within the department.  This program  prepares students for entry into graduate programs in physics and other scientific or engineering fields. It also opens the door to a broad range of employment options in the both the public and private sectors, including employment in industry and at national labs.

At larger schools, graduate students monopolize the labs. At Lewis University, you're working shoulder-to-shoulder alongside faculty PhDs from the start of your Physics program, putting you in a much stronger position to succeed in both grad school and your future career.

Best of all, we intentionally keep your general curriculum to a minimum, giving you more freedom to explore the elective courses you're most interested in and the areas of study most focused on your goals after Lewis.

Career options:

High schools want you to teach the next generation of learners as the U.S. tries to take back the lead in the sciences .Research and development departments want you to help explore cutting-edge innovations like nanotechnology. Wall Street will try to steal you away to help them put together economic models

General Requirements

  • A grade of "C-" or better must be earned in a prerequisite course in order to advance to the next course in the sequence. An overall GPA of 2.0 must be earned in the major in order for a student to graduate with a B.S. in Physics. Physics majors and minors may take a Physics class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum of a "C-" after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.
  • Physics majors with a chemical physics concentration may not double major or minor in chemistry.
  • The flexibility in this curriculum is advantageous to students who wish to create individual programs of study to suit their interests and career goals with approval of their advisors
