Physics Concentration

Physics forms the basis for all scientific inquiry and explores matter, energy, and fundamental interactions. Physicists model the physical universe from elementary particles to the structure of the universe. By emphasizing complex real-world problem solving, physicists collaborate across diverse fields such as finance, renewable energy and medicine.

Students who are matriculated and place into developmental math and/or English are required to begin the course sequence in the first semester. Please see an advisor with questions.
