Department of Physics

Degree Programs

Rutgers-Camden’s Department of Physics offers flexible degree program to its majors. In the BS degree program, students will be prepared for both graduate study and industrial employment. In the classroom, they will receive well-rounded exposure to classical and modern physics. For practical training, the department is equipped with advanced materials characterization equipment, lasers, optics, vacuum equipment, and computational facilities. The BA degree program is designed for the needs of students who wish to attend medical school or to become physics teachers.

In addition, we are home to the Engineering Transfer Program at Rutgers-Camden. 

Physics majors and minors must complete their respective curricula (BA, BS) and maintain a minimum grade-point average of 2.0 in their physics and mathematics courses. Lectures which have an associated laboratory session must be registered with the laboratory session concurrently, unless prior permission has been obtained from the department chairperson. Students should be aware that certain 300 and 400-level courses may be offered only in alternate years. Evening students should consult with the department for the scheduling of courses. 

NOTE: General Degree Requirements, as set by the Rutgers-Camden Faculty of Arts & Sciences, must also be met by majors and minors. Similarly, students seeking teacher certification in physics must complete both the below outlined major requirements as well as additional certification requirements as dictated by the Rutgers-Camden Teacher Preparation Program.




Physics Minor

The physics department offers a minor, subject to the general rules of minors.  For more information consult Rutgers-Camden’s Office of Academic Advising.
