Physics Major (BS) and Minor
Study the workings of the natural world and the universe with a major or minor in physics at the University of Lynchburg. The study of physics fuses theoretical, experimental, and computational techniques.
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.
