Want to Know How and Why? Learn Physics

Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us and the world beyond us.

Physics challenges our imaginations with concepts like relativity and string theory, and it leads to great discoveries (like computers and lasers) that lead to technologies which change our lives - from healing joints to curing cancer or to developing sustainable energy solutions.

Like Science? It Began with Physics

Physics encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies to the smallest subatomic particles.

Moreover, it’s the basis of many other sciences including oceanography, seismology, and astronomy (and can be applied to biology or medical science). All are easily accessible with a bachelor’s degree in physics.
