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:
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.
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.
Ideal for technically oriented students, this five-year program is conducted jointly with Stevens Institute of Technology and leads to a B.S. degree in physics from Seton Hall University and an M.S. degree in mechanical and electrical engineering from Stevens. We are also in the process of developing programs in chemical engineering, civil engineering, software engineering, computer engineering, materials science and engineering, and industrial engineering.
This 3+2 program for students complements the extensive analytical and mathematical background students obtain in their undergraduate studies by further enhancing their computational knowledge. Students can earn either B.S. or B.A. in Physics and earn an M.S. in Data Science in our 100% online program within an additional year. The program is designed to prepare students to be skilled and thoughtful data scientists, skilled in data management and processing; analyzing business and scientific processes; and communicating findings for effective decision making.
Science-loving high school students are invited to spend a week learning about forensics, astronomy, urban farming & more.
