The Department of Chemistry and Physics offers two programs which lead to the baccalaureate degree with a major in physics. Minors in Chemistry, Physics, and Forensic Science are available as further options.
The B.S.E. degree in physics is designed for those students who want to teach physics in secondary schools. This program provides the necessary course work for certification as a physics teacher. Advising is handled by both education and physics faculty members. Many students enrolled in this program also choose to seek certification in mathematics. (See The Teacher Education Certification Section in the University Policies section of this catalog, for further details regarding admission to teacher certification candidacy and Pennsylvania certification requirements.)
Program Requirements: Physics Education (B.S.E.): 126 s.h.
ENG xxxx - LITERATURE Credits: 3
(May also satisfy General Education requirements)
