From the subatomic level to the scale of galaxies, we study the mysteries of the universe.
The Physics of Baseball
Professor examines whether or not sticky substances like Spider Tack provide pitchers with an unfair advantage.
Learn about black holes and galaxies with data gathered directly from a NASA satellite. Reflect and refract lasers in our optics lab to study the properties of light. Study materials 1000x smaller than a hair follicle in our magnetism lab. Like the universe, our research opportunities are (nearly) endless.
A Career Worth Investing In
Physics majors are near the top starting salaries for recent graduates. Nearly 50% enter the workforce directly after graduation and the other half typically attend graduate school. Ever wonder who is hiring physics majors? Well-known corporations, universities, and government agencies lead the charge.
All majors take part in a capstone seminar project where they work directly with a professor on an area of their interest. We then provide guidelines and advice to help down their chosen career paths such as:
- Big Data Analysis
- Artificial Intelligence
- Machine Learning
