B.S. in Physics

B.S. Physics

The laboratory for a physicist can be the space inside an atom or the entire universe!

There are nuclear physicists who study the nuclear structure of atoms...the particles that make up those nuclei...the energy harnessed within that structure. Solid-state physicists probe the structure and behavior of matter. Physicists program computers to produce models of the universe, of energy conversion devices, or of a semiconductor circuit. They can cross over the normal boundaries of science and become biophysicists, chemical physicists, and geophysicists. Some physics majors even become Doctors of Medicine or Lawyers. The number of areas in which physicists find employment are wide ranging and increasing each day.
