Combine your interests in the natural world and computers through the physics-computer science degree. This program focuses on basic elements in both physics and computer science, giving you a solid foundation in both disciplines, a grasp of the overlap between them and knowledge of computer applications in a scientific environment.
In order to build expertise in physics-computer science, you will take a wide spectrum of physics, computer science and mathematics courses, as well as general education requirements. Electives allow you to concentrate your studies in a particular area of interest, and you will be able to choose from a variety of physics and computer science courses.
Since there are relatively few physics-computer science majors, you have frequent opportunities to work with your professors on educational and research projects. Through these experiences, you will obtain insight into questions that will aid professional development.
