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.
