The Department of Physics & Astronomy offers B.A. and B.S. degrees in Physics. The B.S. offers a complete curriculum of advanced undergraduate courses which includes two semesters of Electricity and Magnetism, Quantum Mechanics and Mathematical Physics, as well as a rigorous introduction to Classical Mechanics and Statistical Thermodynamics.
The academic environment in the department fosters extensive mentoring of the students, individual contact with instructors, and advanced teaching methodologies.
We also offer great opportunities for continuous undergraduate research. Many of our undergraduate students have one or more publications in peer-reviewed journals as well as several presentations at regional as well as national conferences. As a result, many of our students have been admitted to some of the top graduate programs in the U.S. as well as found employment in the private sector and as innovative teachers in public and private schools.
Please refer to the UTSA Admission Requirements for details on this process.
For those who are interested in undergraduate research, please see UTSA's Undergraduate Research Opportunities.
Undergraduate Advisor: Dr. Rafael Lopez-Mobilia
