Program description

Physics is the study of the building blocks of the universe and everything in it. That's why it's the foundational science for all the others, including technology.

A degree in physics is excellent groundwork for graduate work in any number of disciplines, including but not limited to biophysics, medicine, astronomy, chemical physics, engineering, meteorology, and computer science, due to its breadth and depth of coverage.
