Degree: BA Physics
The BA in physics degree is designed for students who wish to couple a solid foundation in physics to a non-technical and creative arts field, such as writing, philosophy, political science, or other CoLA majors. Likewise, students can obtain technical background in physics along with obtaining a background in business for those interested in business development opportunities.
