Physics is foundational to understanding physical processes in the universe. It has direct application in fields including geology, life science, engineering, medicine and more. Courses for both science and non-science majors are offered. Students become adept at data acquisition, authoring simulations, problem solving and analysis. We strive to develop critical insight, judgment, and thought processes that prepare students to rationally examine scientific and technological challenges of the future.
Physics is ideal for those pursuing study in engineering, professional schools, medicine, geology and many other fields.
