Careers in Physics
What is Physics?
Physics is the study of matter and energy, from the smallest scale, as in the study of elementary particles, to the largest, as in the study of the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. In this sense, physics is the science that underlies all other sciences.
Developments in basic physics drive technology, and technology helps physicists discover nature’s secrets.
What types of skills, beliefs & interests does a physics major need?
Physicists tend to view themselves as problem solvers, especially those problems that can be couched in mathematical terms. Physics students are trained to solve complex problems by learning to analyze complex relationships in mathematical terms.
