Physics is recognized internationally as a great foundational degree for many careers including in science, industry, education, business, law, and medicine. Physics at the University of Prince Edward Island explores many of the deeper mysteries of the universe and can lead to a wide range of intriguing career and employment opportunities. 


A key focus of the Physics programs at the University of Prince Edward Island is on experiential learning, including opportunities to work with companies and organizations in PEI and across Canada (co-op program) or to work with physics faculty on campus in summer research positions (major and honours programs).

These positions are all paid and they give you a chance to experience different types of jobs, workplace settings and employers, and gain important transferable skills, all while you are a physics student at UPEI.


Some of our recent physics graduates have gone on to graduate school, others to medical school, some have received education degrees and are teaching in the school system, some are professors and researchers at Universities, and others are working in industry.
