California State University, Northridge
Physics B.A.

The most fundamental of all sciences, Physics provides a framework for understanding all other scientific and engineering disciplines. It has fascinated men and women in every age including Newton, Maxwell, Curie, Einstein, Bohr, Dirac, Meitner, Feynman and Hawking. The principles of Physics are crucial to such diverse applications as home electrical wiring, motion of a rocket or skydiver, solar, wind and nuclear energy, and an echocardiogram of the human heart. Understanding Physics helps us make sense of our world.
The B.A. Program in Physics is designed for students seeking a broad foundation in Physics and is most appropriate for students 1) seeking a secondary teaching career, or 2) planning to combine physics with other disciplines.
