Physics

Physics is the most fundamental of the physical sciences and involves the basic principles that govern the workings of the universe from atoms to galaxies. The understanding of nature and the problem solving abilities students develop serve them well in any technical field. If you want to help solve the world's problems, then physics is where it's at!

Beyond the Basics

Students who graduate with this major can pursue careers in:

  • Astronomer
  • Biophysical researcher
  • Biomedical engineer
  • Engineering firms
  • Wind and solar energy sectors

Students get a lot of one-on-one time and group interactions with expert professors.

Students engage in a high-quality research project that gives them problem solving and analytical skills for careers or graduate programs.

All advanced physics courses are delivered in a flipped format, which is an alternative model to the traditional lecture-style of teaching.
