Department of Physics was founded in September 1977. This Department educates
undergraduate students in Physics. However, graduate students may choose one of these
- Condensed Matter
- Nuclear Physics
- Astronomy and Astrophysics
The Bachelor of Science in Physics allows you to explore the nature of matter, energy, and their interactions, both theoretically and experimentally.
In this program, you learn early on about fundamental topics like electromagnetism, wave physics, thermodynamics, and relativity. Upper level courses then give you the opportunity to discuss advanced topics like quantum theory and fluid mechanics, applying principles of mathematics to the material world around you.
- integrates classroom theory with a variety of potential lab experiments and hands-on projects.
- encourages exploration of new and current ideas, and challenges you to learn and enquire about the universe in new and complex ways.
A study conducted found that majors that emphasize quantitative skills tend to have graduates with the highest lifetime earnings. Physics graduates can expect to earn just as much as professionals in computer science, engineering, economics, and finance.
As a physics graduate, you can find work in government or industry labs, in technical fields such as radiation monitoring or power plants, or as a scientific equipment operator. Or you can pair your physics degree with enriched Teacher Education program to launch a teaching career.
A physics degree can also position you for entry into graduate studies in any number of disciplines. Many physics graduates go on to advance their studies and careers as economists, financial consultants, industrial researchers, systems analysts, computer programmers, engineers, biophysicists, or astronomers.
