Physics Major (BS) and Minor
The foundation of the physics program incorporates the principles of physics set in a rigorous mathematical framework. All physics majors complete research projects before they graduate; many students have published papers with faculty in internationally respected peer-reviewed journals.
Our dual-degree engineering program allows students to complete a physics major at Lynchburg and pursue an engineering degree at the University of Virginia.
