The Physics Department at TSU is launching an honors-level Health Physics program for Fall 2008. Funded through a grant from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, it will be the only Health Physics program in the Greater Houston area. This Physics Based program will grant a Professional BS degree in Health Physics with an emphasis in Environmental Health Physics. Pre-Medical Physics (in collaboration with M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Houston) and Nuclear Engineering (in collaboration with UT Austin) will be available. For details, see Health Physics .
