B.Sc. in Physics

The University of Lethbridge Physics and Astronomy Department offers a comprehensive Physics major program. The foundation is built in the first two years by a study of mechanics, waves, electricity and magnetism, optics, thermal physics, and modern physics. In the third and fourth years, students deepen their understanding of the fundamentals, and study more advanced and specialized areas. Students have the benefit of relatively small classes and easy access to faculty. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the active research programs of the Faculty members through Independent Studies, Applied Studies, the Co-op program, and summer employment.
