Physics Major

Physics is one of our most forward-looking undergraduate programs. This is “next-wave” physics with particular strengths in bio-medicine and nanotechnology. By its very nature, physics is a broadly interdisciplinary field, and even more so at USciences. By choosing one of five physics tracks — biophysics, medical physics, pre-med, astrophysics, and materials science — you will take advantage of incredible opportunities to collaborate with classmates and faculty in engineering, chemistry, biology, medicine, and more. Our alumni are in high demand in the bioengineering and pharmaceutical industry, and physics majors are in excellent position for graduate school or medical school.  

What Sets Us Apart?

  1. Thanks to our unique history and wide-ranging relationships, USciences is well-positioned to leverage physics’ developing connections with biological, pharmaceutical, and health-care disciplines.
  2. The program’s forward-looking focus, from curriculum to research, reflects current trends in physics, with emphasis on such emerging areas as nanotechnology.
  3. Our tight-knit, nurturing department and faculty support you every step of the way.
  4. Tracks in biophysics, medical physics, pre-med, astrophysics, and materials science prepare you for the fastest-growing subsets of the discipline.
  5. Interdisciplinary opportunities are available throughout the University, allowing you to study and research with members of other departments.
