Learning Outcomes

For the BA Program in Physics

The students are expected to achieve the following learning goals:

1. Proficiency in mathematics and ability to express and analyze physical concepts using mathematics.
2. Knowledge in core areas of physics including classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, electromagnetism, and thermal physics, and be able to apply this knowledge to analyze a broad range of physical phenomena.
3. Laboratory skills which enable them to take measurements in a physics laboratory and analyze the measurements to draw conclusions.        
4. Oral and written scientific communication, and critical thinking. 

The syllabi of the courses addressing these outcomes can be found under Course Listings.

For the BA/MA and MA Programs in Physics

The students are expected to demonstrate the following learning goals:

1. Proficiency in mathematics and ability to express and analyze physical concepts using mathematics.
2. Advanced understanding of the core areas of physics, including classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and thermal physics, along with the mathematics necessary for advanced analyses in these areas.
3. Laboratory skills which enable them to take measurements in a physics laboratory and analyze the measurements to draw conclusions.   
4. Capability of acquiring, analyzing, and interpreting data in advanced research topics of current interests.
5. Capability of oral and written presentation of scientific reports or papers.

For the Ph.D. Program in Physics
