distant galaxies to the inner workings of the nucleus of every atom. It is the basis
for all applied sciences.
The Physics program at King University offers you a Bachelor of Science degree if
you are planning to attend graduate school in disciplines such as Physics, Engineering,
Computer Science, or Astronomy. The degree includes sufficient math credits to grant
you a minor in Mathematics as well. A minor in Physics is also easily combined with
A Bachelor of Arts degree with teaching licensure is also offered if you plan to teach
Physics in high school. There is a very high demand for STEM (Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Math) teachers nationwide. A B.A. in Physics without licensure will
