Physics (Arizona State University)
How does the world work? A degree in physics helps students begin to answer this question. Arizona State University offers two pathways to an in-depth understanding of physics. Both degrees take about four years to complete with at least 120 credit hours required. Both have intense math requirements, beginning with calculus in analytic geometry I.
A Bachelor of Science in Physics builds a foundation of mathematics and physical science to give students the opportunity to pursue graduate studies or employment opportunities in various fields. Graduates of this program often pursue graduate school in physics, astronomy, medicine, or engineering, or they find employment in business, education, or materials science.
A Bachelor of Arts in Physics allows a more flexible course schedule for students who want a broad understanding of physics or who are planning to major in two different fields. The program focuses on radiation and matter, and students explore the interactions, make-up, and characteristics of each. Graduates often pursue careers as physicists, therapists, research assistants, lawyers, or secondary teachers.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
