The Physics concentration is designed to help students understand the concepts of
classical and modern physics while also developing their ability to solve quantitative
problems in these areas. It provides opportunity for students to acquire the skills
necessary to perform experimental work. The program should develop the student's ability
to communicate, in form and content, both verbally and in writing, the results of
scientific work. The Physics concentration offers a background suitable for students
planning to pursue graduate study or careers in industry, research or teaching. It
also provides a solid foundation for any career requiring analytical reasoning.
