Students in Professor Ed Nowak’s "Perspectives on Physics and Astronomy" class (PHYS169) participate in
research balloon launches on UD's farm.
The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers an undergraduate major
program leading to the BS in physics, with the option of a concentration
in astronomy and astrophysics. A concentration in geophysics is
offered as an option within the BS degree in Geology. There are also
majors leading to the BA in physics and to the BA in Physics Education,
as well as a minor in physics.
The department maintains a balanced program of instruction for students
who wish to acquire some understanding of physics as part of their
cultural background, as well as for those who require training is
physics in preparation for engineering or scientific careers.
Intermediate and advanced courses are offered for students who plan
teaching or research careers in physics or related disciplines.
The research activity of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is diverse and substantial. Undergraduate participation in research is strongly encouraged.

The BS degree in physics provides the basis, primarily in physics and
mathematics, for those who are interested in a career in research or
development in such fields as physics, biophysics, geophysics, medical
physics, marine science, electrical engineering, nuclear engineering,
and related fields.
The BA degree in physics with a concentration in Astronomy is primarily
intended for those who want to make astronomy their profession.
The BA degree in Physics is intended for students who have an interest
in physics but have career goals outside science and engineering and
seek a broader education.
The BA degree in Physics Education is intended for those who want to
become high school physics teachers. The degree has a substantial
education component and requires a semester of student teaching. To be
eligible to student teach, Physics Education students must have a GPA of
2.75 in their physics major and an overall GPA of 2.5. They must also
pass a teacher competency test as established by the University Council
on Teacher Education.
Students who wish to prepare themselves to be certified teachers should consult the teacher education website or the faculty advisor Dr. Kathryn Scantlebury, firstname.lastname@example.org.
