Student's Guide to Undergraduate Physics Major Departments.
Llano, Margaret T.
Provided are data on the physics programs of 622 institutions which offer the baccalaureate degree in physics. The guide is intended for students who aim to become physics majors in college, students interested in science, transfer students, school and community college counselors, and physics faculty. For each institution, information is supplied under 29 headings in seven sections including (1) general information, (2) admission policy for physics majors, (3) undergraduate physics major program, (4) student statistics for physics, (5) physics faculty characteristics, (6) physics facilities, and (7) the availability of a booklet on the physics department program. The fifty institutions which are the most prolific producers of physics baccalaureates are identified and ranked in Appendix 1. There is also a listing of the 43 departments which have been most successful in having a large percentage of their physics baccalaureates admitted to graduate schools. Appendix 3 is a bibliography of sources of information about career opportunities in physics, financial assistance and colleges. (LC)
