About the Program
Physics represents humanity's most profound attempt to understand the universe in which we live.
By studying the events and interactions that occur in nature, our students try to comprehend the truths or laws that govern the physical world. Our physics majors may elect a concentration program in physics or an interdisciplinary program such as applied mathematics, bio-physics, or chemistry.
As a fundamental and all-inclusive science, physics forms an educational base for future careers in science and engineering. Fields such as oceanography, space sciences, civil, computer, electrical and mechanical engineering all involve a strong physics background at the undergraduate level.
