For a reasonably complete description of the physics minor, physics major and the applied physics major, and for course descriptions, see the Physics section in the college catalog.
The CSB/SJU Physics and Engineering Options file shows paths for getting physics and engineering majors. It includes recommendations for when to take physics and math classes. It is good place to start for students making their 4 year plans.
Many of our students are interested in engineering, and stay with us for two, three, or four years before transferring to engineering schools. For more information, please see our Engineering Web site. For students interested in astronomy, we also have a separate CSB/SJU Astronomy Department. We do not have separate astronomy major, though we do regularly offer two introductory astronomy courses. The Physics Department also offers an elective in astrophysics once every few years. More resources for our astronomy courses are available as well.
Students interested in completing a 9-12 teaching licensure in Physics need to contact the Education Department Chair early in their program and review the requirements for the Secondary Education minor.
