Northwest Physics

Responding to a state request for more efficient class delivery, Northwest Missouri State's Board of Regents have agreed to in-activate the bachelor of science degree in physics.

University provost Dr. Dough Dunham says low graduation rates in physics helped with that decision, as well as the need to recruit students to the university's new nanoscale science program. Dunham says physics degree program is simply being inactivated for the time being, not cut out completely.
