The Physics program at Texas State University provides a rigorous background in physics as a preparation for graduate studies or a career in industry.


Physics, the study of matter and energy, is at the root of every field of natural science and underlies all physical phenomena. The problem-solving skills learned in the study of physics are valuable even if one’s career is not in a physics-related field.

The Physics program at Texas State University is for students who want a background in physics but plan to pursue fields of interest other than physics as a life’s work.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities for a physics major exist in a wide variety of settings-from teaching in a classroom to basic research in an industrial or government laboratory, as a self-employed consultant, or as a member of a multidisciplinary research team.
