  • Program Prerequisite: Not required.
  • Minor: No minor is required. However, a math minor is automatically satisfied by taking one additional Math course (MATH 2270 ) beyond the Applied Physics major requirements.
  • Grade Requirements: An overall GPA of 2.00 is required. Also refer to the general grade requirements for graduation under Degree and General Education Requirements .
  • Credit Hour Requirements: A total of 120 semester credit hours is required for graduation; 75 to 76 of these (depending on choice of courses) are required within the Applied Physics major. Forty upper-division credit hours are required (courses numbered 3000 and above); 32 to 33 of these are required within the Applied Physics major.


All Applied Physics majors are strongly encouraged to meet with the chair at least annually for course and program advisement. Call 801-626-6163 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Note that because most courses have prerequisites and some advanced courses are offered only in alternate years, careful planning is essential.
