Physics is the study of the Universe.

  • Bachelor's in Physics leads to careers in technology and engineering sectors as scientists, technician, programmers, analysts.
  • Physics Teachers are in extremely high demand, in recent years only 30% of Physics teachers in High School holds a Physics degree.
  • Bachelor's in Physics and a Single or Multi Subject Credential allows our graduate to teach K-12 level in Physics, Physical Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and other Tech oriented courses.
  • Approximately 1/3 of our graduates goes on to Master's and Ph.D. program in Physics or related fields.
  • As part of the Cal-Bridge program,, students can get a $10000 scholarship and research support in preparation last 2 years at Stan State.
  • The Society of Physics Students is actively engaging physics and non-physics students for field trips, career development and seminars.
