Programs

The Department of Physics offers undergraduate programs leading to both BS and BA degrees. The Bachelor of Arts program offers a specialization in physics to students desiring a general cultural education. Flexibility in electives also makes it possible to combine a physics major with a concentration in other areas such as acoustics, materials science, oceanography, premedical science, biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or business.

In January 1988, the University received State approval to start a Ph.D program in physics and the first doctoral students were admitted in August 1988. The Department is continuing to expand its faculty and research laboratories for this program. the M.S.T. in Physics is also offered and is designed to train physics teachers at secondary and junior level.

In May 2010, the Board of Trustees at Florida Atlantic University approved a Master's of Science in Medical Physics (MSMP) program. The first students started in August 2010. The Professional MS in Medical Physics program at FAU is an accredited graduate program approved by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educational Programs (CAMPEP).
