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.
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.
