Physics B.S.
Physics is the most fundamental science and underlies our understanding of nearly all areas of science and technology. Physics is concerned with the study of energy, space and matter, and with the interactions between matter - and the laws that govern these interactions. More specifically, physicists study mechanics, heat, light, electric and magnetic fields, gravitation, relativity, atomic and nuclear physics, and condensed matter physics.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Sacramento State offers three degree programs: the BA in Physics, the BS in Physics, and the BA in Physics, and one program for a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Physics; the Department also offers Minor programs in Physics and Astronomy.
