Combine your love of Mathematics and Physics into one degree! Earn your bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Physics from Louisiana State University Shreveport.
Earn your bachelor’s degree in physics and develop an understanding of the natural world at the most fundamental level. LSUS offers bachelor’s degree concentrations in both applied physics and theoretical physics. The training that you receive as a physics major in tackling highly complex problems will prepare you to make important contributions in a variety of disciplines.
As a physics major at LSUS, you’ll have opportunities to collaborate in solving interdisciplinary problems, ranging from quantum physics, materials science, nanotechnology, bioengineering and medical physics. Our professors are accessible and engaged scholars who contribute to some of today’s most cutting-edge research in applied and theoretical physics. They will invite you to work side-by-side with them on research (some students have even published their own research under the leadership of our faculty.) Your physics professors will also prepare you to take the next step in your education or help you start your career by putting you in contact with industry and technology professionals.
Our applied physics curriculum combines training in both technology and innovation, including computer-aided design, microelectronic circuit design/analysis, advanced mathematical modeling and engineering. We also offer a projects-based curriculum for students with a creative mindset.
Our theoretical physics curriculum emphasizes theoretical particle physics and cosmology, including the origin of the universe and insights into a "theory of everything” based on analysis of the data from the latest high-energy particle physics experiments at CERN and elsewhere.
Louisiana is home to LONI (Louisiana Optical Network Infrastructure), a statewide fiber optic, high-performance computing and distributed storage network and one of the most powerful supercomputers in the country. LONI connects Louisiana’s major research universities allowing greater collaboration and faster results.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Physics also offers a concentration in math. Learn more about the mathematics concentration at LSUS.
