B.Sc. (Research) in Physics
The research-led undergraduate program in physics is designed for a student who either wishes to pursue an interdisciplinary research career in physics or who wishes to use the skills of a physicist to understand complex systems ranging from the earth's atmosphere to the human cell. The rigorous undergraduate program in physics, together with the multidisciplinary environment of SNU, will enable a student to engage creatively with problems that transcend the confines of any single discipline. The duration of a B.Sc. (Research) in Physics is stipulated as three years (minimum) to six years (maximum).
The interdisciplinary research-led Physics undergraduate program at the University is designed for students who either wish to pursue a professional career in physics or use the skills of a physicist to understand complex systems ranging from the earth's atmosphere to the human cell. The breadth of the physics program, together with the multidisciplinary environment of SNU, enables a student to engage creatively with problems that transcend the confines of any single discipline.
The Physics Department comprises faculty members who are equally passionate about their research and teaching. They are keen to bring the excitement of the discovery to the classroom and to involve students in their research. Many of them have worked at some leading international research and academic institutions and continue to be involved in collaborative research with them.
The physics department offers undergraduate students from other departments an opportunity to obtain a physics Minor. A Minor in physics has two aspects to it. First, it ensures that a student is well versed with the central core of physics, and second, it will allow the student to learn more advanced aspects of the subject according to his or her interests. A Minor in physics will equip a student to engage in challenging multidisciplinary problems. It will be equally valuable for a student seeking employment in industry or finance, where skills in making quantitative models of complex situations are welcomed.
