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

    Ideal for technically oriented students, this 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.

  • Minor in Physics
