Bachelor of Science 

The Department of Engineering-Physics-Systems offers a cross-disciplinary program in applied physics that combines the traditional physics program with courses in systems science. The program builds skills in problem solving, planning, and technical management while preparing students for a variety of career and/or graduate study options. It is founded on a humanities and technical core curriculum similar to the combined-plan engineering program. Physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computational science form the technical core. The final four semesters provide the courses that are specific to the concentration.

Required Courses


Academic programs vary in their requirements. Students should consult with their faculty advisor and the Academic Guidebook to review the Academic Planning Form pertinent to their program of study. In addition, students should review course descriptions regarding any prerequisites for required courses. Graduation requirements include a minimum of 120 credit hours, although some academic programs may require additional credits. Please refer to the Academic Resources section of the catalog for more information. Information regarding the new Core Curriculum, which takes effect with the Class of 2016, is available at http://www.providence.edu/academic-affairs/core-curriculum.
