Physics, BS

In physics, students study the laws of nature, the structure of matter and the behavior of physical processes, and are challenged to think and conceptualize beyond direct human experience. In short, physics expands the potential of students' minds. The flexibility of the physics curriculum lets students tailor their studies to specific interests and career goals.

Physics students achieve a general understanding of leading edge computational, theoretical and experimental approaches to explaining diverse natural phenomena from subatomic particles, to exotic stars and galaxies, and progress into areas as diverse as medicine, law, engineering and finance, as well as mainstream areas of physics such as particle physics, astrophysics, solid state, atomic and molecular physics.
