Overview

Physicists seek to understand phenomena ranging from the infinitesimal to the grand, from how two "up" quarks and one "down" quark are held together to form a proton to how the Big Bang led to the distribution of galaxies observed in the universe. You might imagine a bewildering number of fundamental principles to explain the diversity in the phenomena displayed in the universe. The reality, however, is that it only takes a few. Our physics department tailors your course of study to fit your needs and goals.

In the Physics program of Stetson University you will also find yourself well-prepared for a variety of graduate programs including physics, engineering and medical school.

Class sizes are small, and faculty members provide personalized help. We offer a supportive learning environment, and we are very successful at placing our students into highly competitive, nationally-funded internships and top-tier graduate programs in physics and engineering. Graduates entering the workforce immediately after graduation are also successful at launching careers.

Career Outlook

Demand is high for students with a background and degree in physics, with national growth rates over the next 10 years projected to be about four times higher than the national average for the entire job market, and with salary ranges reaching into six figures after a few years of experience. Although more than 60% of all positions are asking for a bachelor's degree, with a high percentage of positions in the education and scientific and technical services sectors, there is additional emphasis on master's and doctoral degrees.
