Physics is the fundamental science underlying the investigation of all natural phenomena. Its elegant experiments and fundamental theories have provided much of the advancements in present-day science and technology. From the smallest sub-atomic particles to the vastness of cosmic expansion, and at the intermediate scales of our lives, in such areas as solid-state electronics, superconductivity, biological function, and geologic events - physics profoundly impacts our understanding of nature and our ability to harness its secrets for the progress of human kind.
The B.A. in Physics with Teaching of Science Concentrations provides the background in physics and mathematics needed for teaching physics at the high school level. It is not meant for students who wish to do graduate work in physics, but it is appropriate for graduate study in education.
This concentration is designed for the student whose career goal is to teach physics in grades 7-12.
