Programs leading to a B.Sc. degree in physics

Physics is the science of studying the structure and properties of matter and transformations of energy. Using mathematics, as a language, and experimental verification, as the ultimate evidence, physical studies have established the fundamental laws of nature that govern natural sciences and technologies. The B.Sc. program is aimed to give students a general understanding and perspective of physics and its several fascinating areas.

Educating in physics opens the door to many career opportunities; training in physics provides immense flexibility for the future, whether you decide to continue your study, or enter the job market directly. A traditional path is to continue the study of physics in a graduate school toward a master of science, or a doctor of philosophy degree- more appropriate to be qualified to teach and do research in a college or university. A general background in physics prepares the students for continuing their studies in a variety of fields, ranging from relatively close areas such as geophysics, meteorology, engineering, and extending to other sciences, such as as health sciences, business and many other professions.
