Department of Physics

The Department provides students with a comprehensive grounding in the natural laws of physics governing the behavior of energy and matter. Students majoring in physics may choose one of the following five options:

  • Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Physics

    An option for students seeking a comprehensive education to be followed by additional graduate education in physics or in related fields of science, engineering, technology, or mathematics. It is also the appropriate track for those who intend to seek employment in private industry or in the public sector with local or federal governmental agencies. 

  • Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Physics

    This degree curriculum supplemented with additional coursework in education or a secondary Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.E.) major from the College of Education and Human Services is the option for those seeking careers as elementary or secondary teachers in public, parochial, or private schools. 

  • Five-Year Dual-Degree Program

    Is ideal for technically oriented students, the program is conducted jointly with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and leads to a B.S. degree in physics from Seton Hall University and a B.S. degree in biomedical, mechanical, electrical, industrial, computer or civil engineering from NJIT. 

  • Master of Science (M.S.) in Physics

    This graduate degree is an option for anyone that has completed an undergraduate degree in physics or related fields and seeks to enhance their career opportunities. The M.S. in Physics through coursework track is designed for those seeking career advancement or enhanced opportunities in the high-technology sector and additionally in secondary or post-secondary science, technology, engineering or mathematics education. The M.S. in Physics with Thesis track is ideal for individuals seeking basic science and applied research experience appropriate for professional careers in research and development (R&D) or seeking to be fully prepared for advancement into doctoral (Ph.D. or Ed.D.) graduate programs in physics, engineering, mathematics or allied technical or educational fields.
