DescriptionOur Physics Specialization program is designed to build a strong background in numerous areas of modern physics, covering topics from mechanics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism to areas like laser spectroscopy, optics, electronics and more. The Specialization degree has a structured curriculum that provides a focused education while also allowing you to direct the degree towards a chosen sub-field of physics. Physics can also be taken as part of a BSc General or BSc with Honors degree.

The Bachelor of Science Specialization degree provides a focused education in one program. You will take most of your courses in your main subject area, and are expected to maintain a higher standard of academic achievement. A Specialization degree can provide the background to help you proceed to a higher degree, but its primary function is to provide a comprehensive education at the undergraduate level.
