Study of electricity, magnetism, waves, and optics. Prerequisite: PHSX 201, PHSX 210, PHSX 211 or PHSX 213; MATH 126 or MATH 146. Co-enrollment in MATH 127 or MATH 147 is strongly encouraged.

Bachelor of Science in Physics

http://catalog.ku.edu/liberal-arts-sciences/physics-astronomy/bs-physics/

Our goal is to understand the physical universe. The questions addressed by our department’s research and education missions range from the applied, such as an improved understanding of the materials that can be used for solar cell energy production, to foundational questions about the nature of mass and space and how the Universe was formed and subsequently evolved, and how astrophysical phenomena affected the Earth and its evolution. We study the properties of systems ranging in size from smaller than an atom to larger than a galaxy on timescales ranging from billionths of a second to the age of the universe. Our courses and laboratory/research experiences help students hone their problem solving and analytical skills and thereby become broadly trained critical thinkers. While about half of our majors move on to graduate studies in STEM, many find employment in the private sector in diverse careers ranging from financial analysts to physicians. Graduates of all our degree programs can be found in key positions regionally, nationally, and internationally.  In this way, our department is at the forefront of telling the academic story of the University of Kansas to people around the state and around the world.
