The bachelor of science (B.S.) with a concentration in applied physics provides students with a strong physical foundation and equips them with the broad skill set required for work and careers in a variety of applied fields, including but not limited to medical and industrial applications and scientific journalism as well as government and related agencies. It combines a thorough training in fundamental physics with sufficient flexibility for students to take courses in other areas, including biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, or mathematics. To that end, students may tailor their course sequence to suit their particular interests and career objectives. While many graduates proceed directly into industrial positions (particularly in engineering fields), others may go on to graduate school in areas such as biophysics, computer science, engineering, etc.
