Physics, as the most fundamental of the sciences, is the base on which many other disciplines rest. Therefore, knowledge of the fundamentals of physics is often required in other programs. The department offers both a course of study fulfilling the bachelor of science degree and a wide range of service courses for students majoring in disciplines other than physics. Students also have the option of choosing a minor in physics.
Two tracks will lead to a BS in physics at the Downtown Campus: pure and applied physics; or biophysics and medical physics.
We offer minors in physics and astrophysics.
University of Colorado Denver professors will guide your progress and answer your questions.
