Degrees

Bachelor of Science Physics

This degree plan places a strong emphasis on physics and mathematics. It can be tailored to meet the needs of students preparing for graduate school or employment in a variety of fields. Many students with B.S. degrees in physics from Lamar University have been highly successful graduate students in physics at some of the best universities in the U.S. Others have succeeded as engineers, mathematicians, physicians, medical researchers, lawyers, teachers, etc. Faculty advisors help plan programs to satisfy the needs of individual students.

Physics as a Second Major

Physics may be selected as a second major for students wishing to broaden their education. The most popular options are to combine Physics with Engineering or Chemistry. Combinations are also available with Computer Science and Mathematics. A student may choose one degree with a double major or two separate degrees. While a second degree usually requires an additional semester of course work, the double major can be accomplished very efficiently. A Physics advisor can give you specific details on your choice of the field combinations.
