Bachelor of Science: Physics

Program Description

Physics is the study of how nature works, from the unimaginably small world of sub‑atomic particles to the marvelously huge world of galaxies and black holes. It is a basic science that has an important impact on the problems facing modern society. Physicists help attack these problems directly through research and indirectly through teaching, both at the secondary and the university levels.

Western Michigan University's Department of Physics prides itself on the high quality of its teaching and faculty-student relationships. It is large enough to offer strong, well-rounded programs, yet small enough to promote good communication and interaction between faculty and students. Its diverse research program complements its teaching commitment, and ambitious undergraduate students have many opportunities to participate in research. If you would like to study physics at the undergraduate level, WMU has three majors and three minors from which you can choose:

  • Physics major
  • Secondary education physics major
  • Geophysics major
  • Physics minor
  • Secondary education physics minor
  • Astronomy minor
