  3. Energy Science Option: This option will prepare graduates for energy-related careers in industry and government and will provide the student with a strong background in the technical, economic, and instrumentation aspects of all energy resources. Please check with the Department about the availability of classes to complete this option.
  4. Secondary Education Option: This option allows students to get a B.S. in Physics and secondary science teacher certification in collaboration with the UCCSTeach program.

To obtain a degree, the students must complete the core courses and the required courses for each option.
