The applied physics concentration is a variation of the professional concentration for students who wish to pursue more applied work, such as graduate study or employment in engineering fields. It requires the same coursework as the professional option (excluding PHYS 4308 and one PHYS elective course), with an additional 12 required hours of an applied specialty (e.g. electrical engineering, geophysics, wind energy, etc). Majors in this concentration are strongly encouraged to minor in mathematics and to devote time to undergraduate research.
For more information please see our Undergraduate Handbook and consult the current course catalog for an example curriculum (Fields of Study >> Physics, B.S.: Applied Physics Concentration).
