Physicists are problem solvers. The analytical skills they learn make them versatile and adaptable. The undergraduate physics program at UVM will provide you with a deep foundation of knowledge and practical experience which will prepare you for any field.
Our physics department offers both a bachelor of science (B.S.) and a bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree. Both degree options allow you to pursue graduate studies or work in industry. The B.A. degree has a more traditional physics focus which can serve as a foundation for careers in physics, research, engineering, law, medicine, business, technical writing, and teaching. Students in the B.A. program take fewer required math and physics courses and have a broader choice of electives.
