A Bachelor of Science is an undergraduate degree in fields related to mathematics, engineering, and science. It generally gives students a good overview of their chosen fields and familiarizes them with college-level lab work and the preferred method of writing scientific reports. These skills can then be taken in to the workforce, or carried over and used in postgraduate study.

Those looking for an answer to the question of what is a BSc in Physics must first understand that the field of physics can be roughly divided into two branches: theoretical and applied. Theoretical physics deals with intangible formulas and new developments, while applied physics takes these developments and finds practical uses for them. Most bachelor degree programs touch on both branches but do not focus too heavily on either, allowing students to get a feel for which area they are best suited.

A Bachelor in Physics can be leveraged into further study in either science or mathematics. It is a well-respected program that is generally in demand in the workforce. Physics programs are taught using a variety of methods, including lectures and lab work to give students a broader perspective on the field.

The cost of a Bachelor in Physics varies depending on which institution you choose to attend. You can generally expect to pay at least four years of tuition as well as the cost of books and lab fees.

Most graduates with a Bachelor in Physics choose to go into either research or teaching. Research can be done at either government or private labs, though teaching must usually take place at the elementary or secondary level unless the student elects to pursue a postgraduate degree in physics.

Many fine schools offer a Bachelor in Physics online. This opens up the number of institutions you can attend to get your degree and also makes it possible to study on a more flexible schedule.

BSc students interested in studying Physics can choose to take Physics as a Single Major, Double Major or Minor. BEd students may choose Physics as their second Major. Other students whose principal interest is not in Physics may, however, be advised or have the option to take Physics courses. This category involves those enrolled in the School's interdisciplinary programmes and the Marine Studies BSc programme. The School also offers one course (PH105: Physics in Today's World) which may be taken as an elective by those students from FST and other Schools with limited prior knowledge of Physics. -

Physics majors study the fundamental nature of reality using mathematical models based on experiment, observation, and intuition. If you major in physics, you will study a broad range of topics ranging from the tiniest of subatomic particles to the largest: the universe itself. You will explore concepts as seemingly simple as tossing a ball, and as arcane as what the universe looks like when you travel near the speed of light. As a physics major, your quest to learn the mathematical underpinnings of the nature of reality is the first step toward understanding, and ultimately explaining, this strange and beautiful existence we all inhabit. -

The Bachelor of Science is a highly selective three-year Program, taught entirely in English and tailored to academically-inclined students with a very strong interest in mathematics and science. École Polytechnique’s well-rounded approach to learning allows students to develop a solid academic background in science while exploring topics unrelated to pure sciences. École Polytechnique favors small class sizes with an extremely beneficial student-to-staff ratio. École Polytechnique's Bachelor Program is officially accredited with the rank of Licence (French Bachelor's equivalent) by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research. In the second and third years, students thus get the choice between three double majors: Mathematics and Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science, Mathematics and Economics. -
