Requirements for the major in physics, B.S. program


To earn the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in physics, students must complete:

2. A minimum of 22 elective credits in physics at or above the 2000 level, including at least 2 credits of laboratory coursework


4. 10 credits of chemistry at a level not below CHM 1440, but not CHM 3000


5. Capstone course


Additional Information


In addition to these major requirements, students must complete the Oakland University General Education Requirements , the College of Arts & Sciences College Exploratory Requirement , and an appropriate number of free elective classes to meet the overall credit requirement for the degree (in most cases 124; some degrees may require a greater number).

As a general rule, no more than eight credits of course work used to satisfy one major, minor or concentration may be applied toward another, but exceptions to this rule may be allowed with the written approval of the program coordinators.
