Department of Physics

Bachelor of Science in Physics and Mathematics, Dual Major

Why Choose the Physics and Mathematics Program?

The dual major in physics and mathematics is designed for students majoring in physics who wish to gain a strong background in mathematics. This can be particularly valuable for those planning graduate study.

Academics and Curriculum

Since the physics major requires 34 hours of mathematics, and the mathematics component of the major requires 45 hours, 11 additional hours of mathematics need to be taken.

Admission

Students must apply for admission to Wright State University.

Declaring your Major

To apply for admission in the College of Science and Mathematics, students must fill out a “Change of Major” form and declare their area of emphasis (this can be done online through WINGS Express). Often students who have declared “physics” as their area of interest on their Wright State admissions applications will be automatically sent to the College of Science and Mathematics from University College when entrance requirements are met. If this is not the case, students must fill out a change of major form and declare one of the following areas:

  • B.S. in Physics
  • B.A. in Physics
  • B.S. in Physics and Mathematics

Articulation (Transfer) Agreements

Wright State has articulation agreements with a number of institutions. Articulation agreements will assure you a seamless transfer from one institution to another.
