The Physics Major

Hands-on research in a small class setting: the best way to major in physics

A Bachelor of Science from St. Mary’s offers hands-on research opportunities in a small class setting. Physics majors get to work closely with qualified faculty on individualized research projects. The physics major offers two tracks: Applied Physics and Fundamental Physics.

As a senior, physics majors may complete a St. Mary's Project, an independent study in a topic of choice.
