Overview

People are unaware of what physics is and physicists do.  They believe that physicists can only be teachers or professors; that physics is impractical; that physicists are “thinkers” not “doers”; that physics is all “theory”.  However, physics is much more than that.  Most physicists are experimental scientists.  Much of today’s technology, including our medical technology, originated in the physics laboratory.  Most physicists work in industry and are often titled “engineer”.  Physicists have many employment opportunities because of the skills developed through physics.  Learning physics teaches you many important skills such as problem solving, experimentation, and communication. 

The Department of Physics provides an excellent educational opportunity to our students.  Our award winning program is one of the most rigorous physics degrees.  It is designed to help students understand physics and develop the skills to be a scientist.  Every class emphasizes experimental work, computational work and communication.  Our program is designed to help create a sense of community in our students in order to help them succeed. Finally, every one of our students is involved in doing cutting edge research by the time they graduate. 

Student Learning Outcomes:

Upon completion of this degree, students will:
  • have the skills that can lead to a career in industry or for pursuing graduate education in physics, engineering, medical physics or law.
