B.S. Physics

The B.S. in Physics program at Lock Haven University prepares you for entrance into graduate school for a master's or Ph.D. degree in a physics- related discipline. In addition, you may choose to work in a variety of areas such as industry, computer science, business, or engineering. There are also opportunities to work for government agencies on all local, state and federal levels. Our alumni have found positions with NASA, the Pennsylvania State Department of Transportation, and Fermi National Acceleration Lab.

Students have the opportunity to choose from three different Bachelor of Science program tracks, an Associate of Applied Science degree, and two minors, including:

  • B.S. Physics - Traditional Track
  • B.S. Physics - Applied Track
  • B.S. Physics - Education Certificate
  • A.A.S. Nanotechnology
  • Physics Minor
  • Nanotechnology Minor

Students also have the opportunity to join a cooperative program, where the student will complete coursework at LHU and then transfer to another institution to finish their degree.  LHU offers two types of cooperative programs, including:

  • 3-2 B.S. Engineering/B.S. Physics
  • 4-2 B.S./Masters in Engineering Science & Mechanics

Lock Haven University has a specific transfer agreement with Penn State Main Campus, but it is not uncommon for students to transfer to other engineering schools.
