Degrees and programs

Undergraduate programs

There are many programs and specializations to explore. You can choose Co-operative or Regular; Honours Physics, Biological and Medical Physics, Mathematical Physics, Materials and Nanosciences, or Chemical Physics; as well as the option to specialize in Applied Physics, Astrophysics, Biophysics or Medical Physics.

All of the major programs share a core of physics courses, and diversify based upon this strong foundation in science.

If Physics is not your major area of study, we also offer minors in Physics or Biophysics.

More information about the minors can be found in the undergraduate studies academic calendar.
