The Department of Physics offers both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees.
The Bachelor of Arts degree in physics is for students who desire a broad liberal arts education with an emphasis in physics. This is the most flexible of our degree programs and serves studnets having a diverse range of educational goals.
The Bachelor of Science degree in physics is for students interested in receiving an advanced degree in physics or engineering. This degree is designed for individuals planning careers in physics and related technical fields or in areas where knowledge of basic scientific principles is necessary.
Within the Bachelor of Science degree, the physics department offers students to opportunity to pursue engineering through the Dual-degree Physics/Engineering program. This dual-degree program enables a student to receive a baccalaureate degree in physics from CWU and a bachelor of science from an appropriate engineering institution in a respective engineering discipline. The total length of time for both degrees is expected to be about five years, with approximately three years at CWU (dating from enrollment in MATH 172 - Calculus I) and approximately two years at the engineering institution. Students in these programs have successfully completed the engineering portions of their degrees at both the University of Washington and Washington State University.
