Think big picture? So does physics.

Physics students tend be the kind of people who want to know how nature fundamentally works, and enjoy thinking about big problems and asking questions. From atomic physics or nuclear physics to the workings of the cosmos as a whole, your studies as a major or minor in physics will allow you to think critically and conduct research that works for the benefit of humanity.

In one of our two straight physics degrees, the dual engineering degree, a physics teaching major, a minor or the LabView undergrad certificate program, your academic opportunities in this department will prepare you to work to unlock the deepest mysteries of the universe — that’s nothing short of incredible.

Majors + Minors

Physics students tend to want to know how nature fundamentally works, and enjoy thinking about big problems and asking questions. Whether you are destined for grad school, a tech career, teaching, or space, a Blugold physics degree may be the ticket.

The LabVIEW certificate offered through physics is a way to gain proficiency in cutting edge software that has become the industry standard in data acquisition and computer interfacing. Find out more about this opportunity.

LabVIEW: A big advantage

Be a physics honors student

Let’s face it, you would be working pretty hard as a major in physics, and you might just want to take advantage of the boost (or should we say force) that an honors designation through the physics department could add to your degree. Stand out in excellence!
