Physics is a fundamental science. It is concerned with finding and using the rules that govern everything—from the smallest pieces of the atom to the various collections of atoms—molecules, balls, planets, stars, and more—that compose the myriad contents of the universe. Students majoring in physics will be rewarded on a personal level with a deep understanding of the world around us. On a professional level, physicists find a variety of employment opportunities, which are relatively free of ethnic and gender bias, pay well, reward creativity, and are just plain fun.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in physics should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
