Overview for Bachelor of Science Degree in Physics
UHCL Bachelors Science Degree in Physics: Audio | PowerPoint Presentation
The plan in Physics leads to the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at the undergraduate level. Our location and the connections our faculty have with NASA and allied aerospace industry allow UHCL to offer students unique research opportunities. In addition to our Physics BS, we also offer a sub-plan in Engineering Physics specifically designed for students interested in pursuing a career in engineering. The Houston-Galveston area is a thriving center for many science-intensive industries, from aerospace to petrochemical; thus, the demand for professionals with knowledge of physics is high. Local industries in Houston provide a huge potential to employ physics bachelors in addition to the increasing demand for physics teachers in high schools. This demand is also expected to grow dramatically over the next decade. An undergraduate degree in Physics would enable the students to progress into graduate programs in Physics, Astronomy or Engineering. Students may select electives in areas of particular interest.

hysics is a very broad discipline, which can lead to a variety of career options. Because of this, the UHCL Physics program provides several focus areas so that studentscan develop a degree plan to support their specific career goals. Some of these focus areas include: Geophysics, Biophysics, Space Physics, Computational Physics, Mathematical Physics, Materials Science, Physics Education, Premedical and Prelaw. Courses needed to support these focus areas are chosen in consultation with a physics advisor and a faculty member from another program.
