Physics

Students interested in Physics can structure a divisional concentration in the B.S. - Natural Sciences program, or can obtain introductory, elective and laboratory courses in Physics before relocating to the Pittsburgh campus for degree completion. A Physics minor is offered on the Pitt-Johnstown campus. Students majoring in Mathematics, Chemistry, or Engineering Technology should consider taking a physics minor in order to make their resume more attractive to future employers. In addition, one-on-one research with a Physics faculty member is also possible, for credit, through the course PHYS 1111. Research topics in Solid State physics will be useful to many Engineering and Chemistry students.
