Mission

The mission of the Bachelor of Science Degree program in Physics is to offer traditional preparation of students for opportunities in graduate study, research, pre-engineering, and employment. There are two concentrations in the Physics degree program: Medical Physics and Pre-Engineering. The curriculum is designed to provide students with a solid foundation and training opportunities in interdisciplinary research areas such as Chemical Physics, Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering, Material Science, Optics & Lasers, and Engineering.

The Physics program offers several options for obtaining a dual degree (BS/BE). Students may earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering by completing the three-year curriculum at Dillard University and one of the two-year curriculums at the host institution:

  • Columbia University (BS/BE)
  • Georgia Institute of Technology (BS/BE)
  • Tulane University (BS/BE)
  • University of New Orleans (BS/BE)

Student Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate preparedness for graduate study and/or entry-level employment.
  • Effectively matriculate in 3-2 Pre-Engineering and Medical Physics program.
  • Demonstrate preparedness for independent study and research through interaction with scholars and experts in their disciplines.
  • Acquire experience through hands-on-training on major research equipment available in the program.
