That may be one reason so many of MTSU's physics majors started out in pursuit of a different degree (in recording industry, pre-medicine, music, etc.) only to discover that it was the physics of it all that fascinated them. Physics may take them on a different road back to their original interest—a career as a medical physicist, for example.


There's almost no field of endeavor that doesn't have some part of it touched by physics. Not surprisingly, a B.S. in Physics from Middle Tennessee State University can be that first step to any number of diverse careers! Examples include 

  • Acoustics researcher
  • Architect
  • Astrophysicist
  • Doctor
  • Engineer
  • High school physics teacher
  • Medical physicist
