Why study 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.
With a degree in physics, you can take your career in almost any direction you wish. Devote yourself to researching the cosmos. Help develop the next revolutionary medical device. Put your knowledge to work on ways to save the planet. Or pursue a career in teaching. It’s all up to you.
