What is the Physics program? 

Physics is a science that deals with matter and energy and their interactions.   

What will I learn? 

Why is the sky blue? Why do black holes exist, and what causes them? What’s the most likely explanation as to how the Pyramids were built?  What math and science explains the underlying reasons about what happens in nature and the world around us? Physics.  While other sciences explain how, physics is all about the “why.”  

Three levels of Physics courses are offered based on the scope of mathematics used in the course; 4 credit courses include laboratory work. 

What can I do with this course of study? 

A degree in Physics applies to a wide variety of career challenges, including medicine, fusion, nuclear engineering, teaching, government policy, semiconductor research, science journalism, space and atmospheric research, acoustics, petroleum exploration, business, and— of course— physics.

Careers in Physics 

What's special about program? 

Despite what you might have heard, you can do more with a Physics degree than teach at a college and conduct research.  Physics teaches you to think. Thinking helps you to solve problems, regardless of the field.
