Physics Programs

Our small classes are taught by faculty, not graduate students. Hands-on projects and collaborative work in class allow you to see the real-world applications of the theories you learn. We even have an atomic force microscope for solid state physics research. Our classes prepare you for internships, research work, and presentations.

Dream of working with NASA? At UHart, you can do that. In the CT Space Grant Consortium, you can do collaborative work in condensed matter with students from other Connecticut universities. Maybe you’d rather work with a faculty member on research to present at a national conference, like the APS Division of Nuclear Physics. Or perhaps you’ll spend your time in an internship at places like the Brookhaven National Laboratory, the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, or the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Our graduates establish many rewarding careers and pursue graduate work in fields like sustainable energy technologies and chemical kinetics. The support you get at the University of Hartford sets you up to succeed wherever you go next.


Bachelor of Arts in Physics

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree is a flexible program consisting of a concentration in physics, requirements in mathematics and chemistry, and a broad range of required and elective courses in the arts and sciences. The required courses may be combined with courses in education to complete certification for teaching in the public schools.

Bachelor of Science in physics

The Bachelor of Science (BS) is an intensive program in physics designed to prepare specialists for graduate training in physics or (by appropriate choice of electives) for employment in industry. The program has ample room for electives in the arts and sciences and for teacher certification, if desired.
