Along with specific requirements for any major, all students in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degree programs must meet all general education and graduation requirements under a single catalog.

(Students wishing to pursue graduate studies in physics should not complete the BA but should instead complete the requirements for the BS in Physics.)
 Bachelor of Arts in Physics requirements are a minimum of 32 hours in physics, including:
