The APSU Physics Major is versatile enough to provide superior preparation for graduate study or a career in a wide variety of physics-related disciplines, from Astrophysics to Medicine.  Its large selection of major electives allow the student to tailor the major to exactly the career path in which they are interested.  A minor is not required, though a mathematics minor is suggested (3 additional hours in mathematics at the 3000 or higher level required for a mathmatics minor).  All upper-level physics courses (3000 or higher) require prerequisites to be passed with a grade of C or better.

  Credit Hours
General Education Core (see TBR Common Core )
University-Wide Freshman Seminar Requirement (APSU 1000)

(Note:  The physics major automatically satisfies the 11 hours of Natural Science and Mathematics general education core requirements)

Science Literacy Requirement (3 hours)

Science or Mathematics at any level (8 hours)

 8 hours of additional coursework from any Department in the College of Science and Mathematics at either the lower or upper level.

Upper Division Electives (10 hours)

Any other upper-level (300 or higher) classes from the College of Science and Mathematics can be taken with approval of the Chair of Physics and Astronomy.
