Physics B.S.

The Joint BS Physics degree is a Bachelor of Science degree with a Physics major, provided through the joint efforts of physics faculty both here at TAMUCC and at other schools in the Texas Physics Consortium (TPC). Interested students are encouraged to visit the TPC website at Upper-level physics courses can originate at any of the TPC schools, and students at any of the other TPC schools can take them via distance education.

Physics courses are also offered in support of other major study areas in the sciences, mathematics, computer science, engineering and technology, and 8-12 level physical science teaching certification.


Student Learning Outcomes

Students obtaining the Joint BS in Physics will:

  • possess a broad understanding of physics.
  • understand scientific methods and be able use them to develop and conduct studies of physical systems.
  • communicate physical information effectively at the undergraduate level, whether the communication is in oral or written form, with or without the use of technology.
