Students at the University of Dallas may find that traditional departmental boundaries are not adequate to describe the breadth of their interest, especially when post-baccalaureate plans are considered. Though they may choose a major in Mathematics or Philosophy or Biology, they may also have an interest in bolstering their education with further applications and models of Physics. In addition, a student who seeks secondary certification with a science composite would find the Applied Physics Concentration useful in fulfilling certification requirements. The concentration in Applied Physics seeks to provide students the opportunities to pursue new studies that relate to their major and life interests.
The concentration consists of six courses and associated labs. The core courses in the concentrations are General Physics I and lab, calculus or trig-based, General Physics II and lab, calculus or trig-based, and Computational Physics.
Two courses may be selected from the following:
The sixth course is an elective from a field other than physics that allows the student to tailor the concentration to his or her interests. Possible choices include the following or an elective approved by the Director.
