BioPhysics Concentration

(Biophysics concentration) is recommended for students planning to pursue graduate studies and industrial R&D in biological related areas in physics, chemistry, bioengineering, and material sciences. This concentration is designed to allow the students to gain a solid foundation in physics and biology, together with a specially-designed course in biophysics which demonstrates the disciplinary interface between the two. The concentration requirements consist of courses in physics (26 cr), mathematics (12 cr), chemistry (15 cr) and biology (18 cr) and 8 credits of electives (at least 4 must be in physics).

Courses in Physics (26 credits)

·    PHYS 11100 - General Physics: Introductory Course in Mechanics, Heat, and Sound

·    PHYS 12100 - General Physics: Introductory Course in Electricity and Magnetism, Light, and Atomic Physics

·    PHYS 33000 - Atomic and Nuclear Physics

·    PHYS 33400 - Intermediate Electricity and Magnetism

·    PHYS 33600 - Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics

·    PHYS 42000 - Introduction to Biophysics

Mathematics (12 cr)

·    MATH 15000 - Calculus with Analytic Geometry I

·    MATH 15500 - Calculus with Analytic Geometry II

·    MATH 25000 - Calculus with Analytic Geometry III

Chemistry (15 cr)

·    CHEM 10200 - General Chemistry I

·    CHEM 10400 - General Chemistry II

·    CHEM 10600 - General Chemistry Laboratory

·    CHEM 22200 - Organic Chemistry Lecture I

·    CHEM 22400 - Organic Chemistry Lecture II
