The aim of the Department of Physics is to help students develop an understanding of the fundamental laws and behaviors of the physical universe and to practice the techniques used by scientists in acquiring such an understanding.


A physics major can prepare a student for careers such as secondary school teaching, industrial research, general engineering, or many other jobs that require technical problem solving skills. With the physics major and additional graduated study, students can prepare for careers in basic research, teaching at the college or university level, medical physics, specialized engineering fields, and combination fields such as biophysics.
