DOUBLE MAJOR PROGRAM IN PHYSICS

Double Major Program in Physics

Physics Department views its own program as a well suiting opportunity for the students from other departments who are willing to pursue training in a second major program. Physics has become closely associated one side with technology, on the other side with social sciences which will derive insight from fundamental developments in physics.

The program consists of all courses in the undergraduate curriculum. The equivalency of the courses will be determined by the Department.
