The Department of Engineering-Physics-Systems offers a cross-disciplinary program in applied physics that combines the traditional physics program with courses in systems science. The program builds skills in problem solving, planning, and technical management while preparing students for a variety of career and/or graduate study options.
Career possibilities for applied physics majors include:
A major is offered in applied physics which leads to the bachelor of science degree. In addition, the College offers a major in physics/secondary education which leads to the bachelor of arts degree.
A minor in applied physics is available.
PC recently received its first major grant award from the Clare Boothe Luce Program at the Henry Luce Foundation. The award will support eight Clare Boothe Luce Undergraduate Scholarships in chemistry, applied physics, mathematics, or computer science for exceptional senior female students.
