Dual Degree Program
In this program you can earn two degrees in five years.
The Physics-Engineering Dual Degree Program provides an option through
which SFA students may complete requirements for a major in physics, a minor
in mathematics and the core of courses that are part of the Pre-Engineering
Students who complete the dual degree curriculum outlined below
will receive a B.S. degree in physics from SFA upon transferring back sufficient semester hours (approximately 30) from the upper-division engineering
program. Of these 30 hours, six hours must be advanced engineering hours.
The remainder may be core courses and electives. Upon completion of the
Engineering Program at the engineering school, the student will receive a B.S. degree in engineering.
Important: Students should contact engineering schools such as TAMU, UT Tyler, UTA, UTD, the University of Houston, and Texas Tech
about the compatibility of the suggested curriculum with their program.
Physics Degree Program
Students may also consider obtaining a physics degree from SFA alone without the need for transferring. The example plan below shows the courses that would be required for a physics major with a math minor.
