Resources for Physics Majors

Being a physics major isn't easy. There's a lot of really big questions out there. Like will I ever really understand the 3rd law of Thermodynamics?  Or will I ever finish my research? Or have you seen Bro. Oliphant? But whatever the question, hopefully these pages will help you out, or at least give you a start.

Emphasis Areas

All incoming majors are required to choose a specialized emphasis area to help tailor to their interests and educational goals. There are currently 9 emphasis areas offered. They are: Astronomy, Biophysics, Chemistry,  Computational, Engineering, Geophysics, Mathematical, Medical, and Pre-Med. Ask your faculty mentor what's available and how this could help you get to your desired career.

Registration Holds

Before you can register for each semester you will be required to meet with your faculty mentor to ensure you're on track with your grad plan and educational goals. If you don't know who your faculty mentor is, go see Sis Nelson in ROM 118 and she can show you. This hold will be put on every semester before you can register, so get in early to ensure you can register when your day opens.
