Biophysics B.S. (Purdue degree)Offered by: Department of Physics All physics majors study the foundations of the field: classical mechanics, classical electrodynamics, quantum mechanics, relativity, and statistical physics.
Why choose this program?
The biophysics option is ideal for students who wish to pursue a career in medicine, or those who wish to work in one of the many careers requiring an interdisciplinary knowledge of physics and biology: biomedical engineering, biophysical research, and medical technology to name a few.
What will you learn?
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. Undergraduates will find that they have the unique opportunity to work closely with faculty as they complete their degree. Students majoring in physics consolidate their undergraduate studies by putting what they have learned to use in a capstone experience in one of the department’s research laboratories. Each student joins a member of the faculty in a project that provides experience in a professional setting.
What will you do?
Because of a broad-based and flexible problem-solving background, physics graduates find employment in a wide variety of fields, some of which are not directly associated with physics.
The Physics Bachelor of Science degree is a four year program consisting of 124 credit hours and is awarded by Purdue University.
