Undergraduate Programs

For students interested in physics at the undergraduate level, there are a number of options, including a Bachelor of Science (BSc) with a major in Physics or a BSc with Honours in Physics. We offer specializations in a number of physics sub-disciplines. Our Majors and Honours students can opt to complete one of the following physics streams where students select six courses in a given field of interest:

Computational Physics
Environmental Physics
Materials Physics
Applied Materials
Theoretical Physics
Leadership in Physics
Medical Physics

Diploma in Meteorology

Completed as part of a four-year BSc in Physics, or following the completion of a bachelor's degree in any science, math or other quantitative-based program.

Physics Without all the Math

Physics, atmospheric science and astronomy courses beyond the first year, but without math prerequisites past the 1000-level. This course can be used to obtain a minor in physics, which consists of six courses at the 2000-level or above.

To find a syllabus, please see our Course Syllabus page.
