B.S. in Physics with the Analytic Track
This track is designed as preparation for graduate study in physics and related fields. It consists of the foundation set of physics courses plus the following:
- PH 391 Physics research
- PH 416 Quantum mechanics II
- PH 418 Electricity and magnetism II
- PH 480 Advanced topics in physics or suitable replacement
- PH 493 Advanced laboratory
B.S. in Physics with the Applied Science Track
This track requires the foundation set of physics courses plus six courses in a scientific area of focus, subject to the approval of the physics department. These courses can be tailored to the interests and career goals of the student. Additional areas of focus from the ones listed below are possible. Please feel free to contact the physics department chair for more information.
Areas of Focus:
B.A. in Physics
The BA requires the foundation set of physics courses. This curriculum is intended for students with multiple interests, which could be in the humanities, social sciences, business, education, or sciences. A student has the flexibility to minor or double major. For students interested in pre-health programs, the BA in physics is one way of fulfilling all of the requirements. Please feel free to contact the physics department chair for more information.
B.S. in Physics and Biology
This is an interdisciplinary major. See Alternative Paths or review the biology/physics interdisciplinary major course guide for more information.
B.S. in Physics from Loyola and B.S.E in Engineering from Loyola
This is a five-year dual degree program where a student receives two degrees from Loyola: one in physics and an accredited degree in engineering.

B.S. in Physics from Loyola and B.S. in Engineering from Columbia University
This is a 3-2 program in which the student spends three years at Loyola followed by two years at Columbia.
