Department of Physics
Physics—answering big questions.
Atoms, the universe, and everything in between, physics addresses how these function. But there’s no magic equation. Physics is not about simply following rules. Physics is about discovering and understanding the rules—and applying those to discover the next insight into matter and energy.
Your future begins here.
By studying physics, you’ll acquire the background, explanation, and understanding for other sciences, such as biology, chemistry, and engineering. The result? Excellent career opportunities upon graduation.
