Physics student with professor GET TO KNOW YOUR PROFESSORS—With small class sizes and professors who teach your courses and know you by name, you'll find it easier to learn about their specialties, find research opportunities, or get references. Oxidation studies for silicon micro and nanotechnology are one of several areas of research for professor Muhammad Numan.


Physics holds a strong place among sciences

Physics is the underpinning of all science. It is increasingly becoming an important practical component of engineering, medicine, biology, and chemistry. As an Applied Physics major pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree, you'll receive an excellent foundation for a career in science.

The Applied Physics Program consists of a core of basic courses in mathematics, physical science, and computer technology. There are five concentrations within the Applied Physics program: biology, chemistry, computer science, geology, and solid-state electronics.

If you've been interested in pursuing a career in computers, the physical or biological sciences, geology, or engineering, you may wish to consider this program as an alternative.
