The Physics program of Rutgers University offers several tracks, with excellent preparation for graduate school for those interested in pursuing a doctoral degree, and options to tailor a degree to provide a good foundation for those interested in medicine, teaching, engineering or other related technical fields. The Department has an excellent record of supporting undergraduate research experiences, and notably has had one or more winners of the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship every year for the past 10 years, and in 12 of the past 14 years, including four associated with the Department in 2019.
Physics is the study of energy and the behavior of single atoms and their component pieces. Physicists are the most fundamental of scientists for they examine the basic laws of nature. They seek to study and understand what happens when atoms and subatomic particles break down and assemble, how they react to collisions with each other and to electro-magnetic radiation.
With 70+ faculty members, Rutgers boasts the largest and most accomplished physics faculty in the nation. This program takes into consideration the specific needs of adult and nontraditional students and University College-New Brunswick endorses it as an adult-friendly & working-professional program.
