The APSU Physics Major is versatile enough to provide superior preparation for a wide
variety of physics-related disciplines. We have put together a number of directed
advising paths within the physics major for students wishing to pursue graduate study
or a career in any of several physics-related fields. Students pursuing many of these
fields in graduate school, can frequently secure a tuition waiver and/or a graduate
assistantship, so that graduate study is at no cost to the student.
All directed advising paths are based on the BS in Physics, with each path suggesting a particular set of directed electives within the major.
- Atmospheric Science
- Chemical Physics
- Computational Physics/Engineering
- Materials Science
- Secondary Education Licensure
Of course, the APSU Physics Major is also excellent preparation for students wishing to pursue Graduate School in Physics as well.
If you don't see quite what you are looking for in the list above, just download a copy of our Physics Major Template as either a PDF or an Excel spreadsheet, and create your own career path! (Requires approval of the Chair of Physics and Astronomy).
