A physics degree represents more than a collection of courses. It is a coherent set of competencies and outcomes which emerge from a student's experience with the degree program. Using a process known as "tuning", initiated by a grant from the Lumina Foundation, physics departments throughout the state of Utah have determined a set of learning outcomes to which we all aspire. While we recognize that each institution has its own talents and methods for achieving these outcomes, we have agreed that a physics degree includes these outcomes at its core.
