Options for the Bachelor of Science, Physics
Provides a general overview of the field, without a clear specialization in any specific area of physics. Ideal for students who want a general formation and a broad selection of subjects. It is useful for any job where technical knowledge is a must. View suggested sequence of courses.
Provides an in-depth concentration for students who want to learn about physics in detail. Two concentrations are offered and both include material about modern concepts and trends in the field.
- Option A: Physics: This is a traditional option, with computational techniques representing a current trend for problem solving. Students can choose to specialize in experimental or theoretical physics. Beneficial to students who want to find employment after graduation or continue studying physics or engineering at the graduate level. Students can work in the areas of engineering, telecommunications or scientific software development. View suggested sequence of courses.
- Option B: Biophysics: A truly interdisciplinary option spanning Physics, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biology. Beneficial to students who are interested in broad issues and links between disciplines in science, and provides the background for further work in any science field or medicine. Students can work in conservation or the environment, for pharmaceutical companies, or in hospitals: medical physics or imaging (although further specialization is advisable). View suggested sequence of courses.
An excellent choice for students interested in research and graduate studies since a research project is required for graduation. Normally, students apply for entry into the honours program after starting in the specialization. The program requires a high academic standing to enter and remain in.
BSc Specialization (Co-op)
Students enrolled in either of the specialization options may take them in the co-operative education format, which alternates study terms with work terms.
