MINORS: Astronomy, Earth Science and Physics.
Physics and Earth Science offers courses in three areas: Astronomy, Earth Science, and Physics. Physics and Earth Science provides for a special emphasis in Astronomy and provides a strong undergraduate concentration of courses in this field for students planning to pursue graduate work in Astronomy. The Physics major earns a B.S. degree.
HONORS: Students majoring in Physics and judged qualified by the faculty may, upon invitation, elect to pursue honors work in Physics. To graduate "With Honors in Physics," students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, a minimum major GPA of 3.2, complete nine hours of honors work (PHY 303H, 304H, 490), and submit an honors thesis.
PRE-ENGINEERING (Dual-degree program): The pre-engineering program has been approved by the Subcommittee on Engineering Transfer for transfer to the engineering programs at North Carolina A&T State University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. In this dual-degree program with the above named institutions and Clemson University, students spend three years at Lenoir-Rhyne University and at least two years at one of the above named institutions. A large and changing number of options are available under this program. Specific program information is available from the pre-engineering advisor. Students who wish to transfer after two years at Lenoir-Rhyne University are not required to fulfill core requirements, but do not receive a degree from Lenoir-Rhyne University.
