Mathematics-Physics

Bachelor of Science
School of Sciences and Social Sciences

This interdisciplinary program provides sufficient groundwork in both mathematics and physics for employment in industry, the commercial sector, or further study in graduate school. In order to complete the program within four years, the student should begin the Physics sequence in the spring of the first year of studies. Calculus I should be selected as soon as possible.

Students who are interested in an engineering degree may elect this program, complete major requirements over three years, transfer to an engineering school of choice, and be awarded both the B.S. in Mathematics-Physics from Keene State and the appropriate engineering bachelor's degree.

The program is comprised of:

  • 20 credits of Mathematics
  • 24 credits of Physics
  • 4 credits of Computer Science
  • 8 credits of Chemistry
