This section provides guidance on developing specialized degree tracks or majors within your physics program. Examples of such tracks include applied physics, engineering physics, biophysics, optics, astrophysics, and physics education, and can include BS and/or BA options. Such degree tracks may be developed within your department or collaboratively with other departments in your institution. This section explains how multiple degree tracks can be developed and sustained, and includes guidance on determining the degree tracks that would best fit your local context, establishing the resources and partnerships necessary to maintain each degree track, developing the curriculum for each track, and supporting and promoting your degree tracks. The section focuses on general guidance on degree tracks, rather than suggestions for specific degree tracks or their associated curricula. For guidance on how to establish a degree option for high school teacher education within a physics major or minor, see the section on High School Physics Teacher Preparation. For guidance on how to establish a dual-degree program within your institution or with a partner institution, see the section on Dual-Degree Programs.
