Department of Physics
All physics students, regardless of the degree plan chosen, are required to maintain a portfolio of their work and accomplishments in physics. This portfolio provides documentation, supplements the transcript, that the student has attained each of the above learning objectives.
A total of 10 hours of community service or outreach activities are required by the Physics department. These activities must involve engaging, explaining, promoting or demonstrating physics/science concepts to the general public.
All physics majors (including B.S., B.A., and Dual Degree*) must complete a research project. Research projects take several quarters to complete; therefore, students must have a research plan approved by their Physics advisor prior to their junior year (or 2 academic years before their anticipated graduation date). See the faculty research areas page or undergraduate research page for more information.
B.S. Requirement: 4 credits of PHYS 495
B.A. and Dual-Degree Requirement: 2 credits of PHYS 495
In addition: Every student is expected to produce one written technical document and give a presentation outside their research group (either a poster or an oral presentation). CWU’s annual SOURCE symposium provides an opportunity to present your research and see the research projects of other students.
