The Physics major program at Kenyon is designed to provide an excellent grounding in theoretical, computational, and experimental Physics for students planning a career in Physics or an allied field such as Astronomy, Engineering, Medical Physics, Biophysics, Geophysics, or other applied science.
NOTE: At least one of Physics 340, 350 or 360 must be taken for the Physics major.
Students planning to go on to graduate study are strongly encouraged to take several additional courses in Physics and Mathematics. Physics majors are also subject to the general College requirement to pass a Senior Exercise. The Senior Exercise in Physics consists of a departmental colloquium talk given by the student and a standardized test on undergraduate Physics.
