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:

  • Engineering
  • Big Data Analysis
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
