The physics department offers a Bachelor of Science, as well as a minor in physics.
This degree lays the foundation to begin your career or to continue your education for a higher degree in graduate school in physics or another field, such as law or medicine.
The program has a high fraction of electives so that in consultation with your advisor, you can tailor a special program that suits your needs. This makes it easy to minor in computer science, mathematics or another field.
All undergraduate students graduating from Missouri S&T are required to have an experiential learning activity as part of their degree requirement

In this accelerated program, an undergraduate student takes graduate courses as part of the Physics BS degree which then also count towards the Physics MS degree. Students must take nine credit hours of physics graduate lecture courses at the 5000 or 6000 level during their undergraduate, and those credits will be transferred to the Physics MS program.
(1) Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 in Physics courses, (2) Application letter outlining the student’s objectives in entering this program. (3) A recommendation letter from a Physics faculty member recommending the student for this program.

This minor is a flexible program with the goal of increasing your breadth and competency in modern or classical physics. As a science student pursuing a physics minor, you might be interested in a deeper understanding of fundamental physical processes. As an engineering student who intends to work in research or advanced development, you can use a physics minor to acquire a thorough knowledge of classical and quantum optics or laser processes. The minor consists of the following classes:
The program will be designed to conform to your individual interests and needs.
