The PHYSICS MAJOR provides a student with a solid grounding in the principle fields of classical physics - mechanics, heat, light, and electricity and magnetism. It also provides a firm understanding of the elements of modern physics - relativity, quantum theory, particle physics and thermodynamics.
The physics program has given a solid scientific foundation to scores of graduates who have successfully pursued graduate degrees in science. Physics majors from past graduating classes have earned advanced degrees in the fields of materials science, bioengineering, medicine, dentistry and computer science, as well as degrees in physics. Many areas, such as architecture, meteorology and geology, can be studied on a graduate level when one has an undergraduate major in physics.
