The curriculum in physics is designed to prepare majors for a
range of options: graduate study in physics or
study in a related science such as geophysics, meteorology, or
graduate study in physics/science education, industrial physics
or positions in science-related business fields. Opportunities for
research and internships in science-related industry are also
The study of physics requires a strong mathematics background, and
completion of the courses required for the physics degree guarantees
completion of a mathematics minor as well. Computers are also of
importance to physics and our majors are advised to take courses in
programming languages, especially FORTRAN and C.
For the degree requirements of the physics major and the
minor, please refer to the McMurry University course catalog
or see the pages from the latest catalog below.
