  • Physics as a Second Major The requirement for physics as a second major, for students in the colleges of engineering, arts and letters or business, consists of the physics core courses listed above, except General Chemistry. In order to list physics as a second major on the transcript, the student must satisfy all of the requirements for a major in some other department and college of the University.
  • Physics Education Program Majors in the physics education program complete 32 credit hours of education courses offered at Saint Mary's College.
  • Honors Program in Physics (click for more information) The goal of this Honors program is to give our most talented students an exceptional background in Physics research. Participation in this program will increase their level of commitment and productivity while preparing them for successful postgraduate work.
         The program will accept junior Physics majors in good academic standing in the Spring of their Sophomore year, who have identified their research advisor in the Department of Physics and have already completed one semester of undergraduate research. Acceptance will be based on a research statement and transcript. At acceptance into the program a formal agreement will be set up between the student and the advisor.
