The following degree programs are offered by the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Please visit the links to the left to learn more about these programs.

A Minor and a Collateral is also offered in Physics. We also offer a Collateral in Astronomy.

At Francis Marion University we take pride in our small class sizes. This allows our students the ability to interact more with the course professor. We also have an active Society of Physics and Engineering Students at FMU. Please refer to the Course Catalogue for more details on each of the degree offerings. If you have further questions, please contact your Physics advisor. Please see Sherry Owens (LSF L103) if you do not have an advisor or would like to change your Major to a program in Physics.
