We offer programs that prepare students for careers in Physics, Physics Education, Astronomy, Engineering or interdisciplinary work in another technical field (see Physics Majors & Programs). We strive to provide students a breadth of knowledge, skills and experience for realizing a vocation in their chosen field and the foundation to be life-long learners.

Andreas Stolzer
It was interesting going into physics with the idea of going into engineering. It was a means to an end for me. Then I started it and found that I like physics on its own. It’s just an interesting puzzle, for me at least, and it’s a lot of fun.
