Students who choose to major or concentrate in physics take courses that prepare them for graduate studies, teaching, medical school, and industry. The low student-to-faculty ratio means students are offered many opportunities to interact with professors in courses, laboratories, and research. In 2013 the department added a dual degree in electrical engineering program with the University of Texas at Arlington. The department also offers Astronomy, Physics & Technology and General Physics I and II as Core Curriculum courses.
