San Francisco State University
Physics B.A.

The Bachelor of Arts in physics is suited for students whose career goals involve secondary-school teaching, or the combination of physics with other fields such as engineering, business, or humanities. This program also provides excellent preparation for technical writers, technical salespeople, and laboratory technicians and research assistants. Students interested in high-school or middle-school teaching can take advantage of the department''s single subject matter program in physics. By completing the B.A. together with an approved sequence of courses in consultation with an adviser, students can demonstrate their preparedness to enter a one-year credential program to complete their training as a physics teacher. This B.A. in physics stresses education in physics fundamentals with some additional advanced courses, laboratory, and computer work. It can be combined with a minor in business, engineering, art, or humanities to prepare students for careers that cross disciplinary lines. Future teachers can combine it with a mathematics minor to prepare themselves to teach math as well as physics.
