The Physics Honors Program is designed to recognize and enhance the development of talented physics students. The program consists of departmental awards for outstanding achievement and special courses, seminars, and research laboratories for honors students. In addition, Physics Honors Students are also eligible to earn the BS degree with Departmental Honors and to participate in the five-year BS/MS Program.
Incoming freshmen or students with fewer than 30 semester hours of credit are eligible to be Physics Honors Students if they graduated in the top 20% of their high school graduating class and their combined SAT score is 1000 or more with at least 600 on the math portion of the SAT (or equivalent for other examinations). Students with 30 or more semester hours credit must have a minimum 3.2 GPA (with at least 3.2 GPA in all physics and mathematics courses) to be eligible.
