Undergraduate Program

A degree in physics prepares students to enter many professions including physics, astronomy, engineering, computer science, management, medicine, journalism, geology, meteorology and many others. Physics students learn how to identify, quantify, and solve real-world problems and this makes them extremely valuable to prospective companies and laboratories.

To prepare students, the PSU Physics Department offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Physics in a variety of different emphases:

Professional (preparation for graduate study)


Solid State Physics

Polymer Physics

Engineering Technology Emphasis

Customized Option


We also offer Bachelor of Science in Education Degree in Physics

For a complete description of Physics course offerings and a detailed listing of required courses for each emphasis, see the Physics Program Guides and the Physics section in the PSU Catalog.


Scholarships for Undergraduate Physics Majors
