Teach at a major research institution. Develop and build instruments that diagnose disease. Become a project manager at an engineering firm. As a physics major at BVU, you will not only explore the fundamental properties and laws that govern space, time, energy and matter, you will acquire superior problem-solving abilities and quantitative reasoning skills that can be applied to any number of professions.
Through your studies, you’ll become an adept critical thinker as you study how the natural world behaves by addressing real-world questions and complex problems. You will also carry out an extended research project under the guidance of a highly qualified professor, or have the opportunity to participate in a summer internship at a major research institution. These practical, hands-on applications will enhance your analytical skills, broaden your perspectives, and prepare you for a career in virtually every field or for further study in physics or engineering. The physics program at BVU also has a curriculum track geared toward preparing students for the dual degree engineering program at Washington University in St. Louis.
I'm passionate about teaching at BVU because I get to work closely with students and get to know them as people. The environment is collaborative and I get to discover along with students.
