Double Major in Physics

Double Major

A number of students studying in various disciplines have shown their interest in pursuing a double major curriculum if offered by the university. Discussions were held on the modus operandi for introducing a double-major option for BU.

At the MNS Department, we are at present offering Bachelor of Science programme in physics and also minor in physics programme.

Students who want to do a double-major, one of them being physics, will have to complete a total of 66 credits, the break down of which is given in the following:
