The Physics program at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia is exceptional in offering one of the few undergraduate physics programs in the region with biophysics, medical physics, pre-med, astrophysics, and materials science tracks. 


We offer a bachelor degree in Physics with different tracks at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. These tracks provide focus to upper-level courses and offer an applied, interdisciplinary connection with current issues in industry, medicine and research.

The culmination of the physics program is a capstone senior-level research course sequence in which each student is matched with a physics faculty mentor to complete a project and develop and deliver a formal seminar presentation.

The biophysics track is perfect for students  interested in the physics of biological systems.  This track prepares students for graduate programs in biophysics, biomedical engineering, neural science as well as careers or professional degrees pertaining to the biophysics and bio-technology. This track is of the most interdisciplinary on campus. It provides a solid background in the three basic sciences, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. To know more about biophysics visit the Biophysics Society.
