The Department of Physics offers a range of concentrations well suited to students intending to pursue advanced work in graduate school, careers in industry or government, or the teaching of science within the public school system. Students may elect one of four concentrations: Preparation for Graduate School, Applied Physics, Physics with Teacher Licensure, and Physics with Comprehensive Science Licensure. Computer competency is an integral requirement of all three concentrations.
The department is dedicated to excellence in undergraduate instruction. The professional interests of the faculty cover a wide range of current research in physics and physical science, and the size of the department affords ample opportunity for the close student-faculty contact we consider a major asset of our program at UNCA.
Declaration of Major in Physics
Declaring a major in Physics requires the student to complete a Declaration of Major form that must be signed by the department chair. Before declaring a major, students must satisfy the LANG 120 requirement.
