Physics—where innovation and understanding become a unified front.
Did you know that physicists developed the underlying technology of cell phones, computers, and tablets? They also created the image sensors used in cameras, magnetic storage in hard drives, the MRI—the list goes on, but you get the picture.
If you’re fascinated by the structure, materials, and features that make up the earth, you’ll enjoy earning a minor in geology, which is centered on providing an introduction to the science. You’ll learn basic knowledge of geological concepts as you take classes covering oceanography, stars and galaxies, the solar system, geomorphology, paleobiology, mineralogy, and hydrogeology.
