Three-quarters of our physics majors go on to advanced studies, pursuing astrophysics, engineering (electrical, mechanical), energy and environmental policy, law school, medicine and secondary education. Most receive fellowships and research/teaching assistantships that cover full tuition and living expenses for grad school.
Our basic toolkit in physics is clear: strong mathematics, reasoning and critical-thinking skills. The result? The ability to solve problems that will equip you for success in many fields.
The American Institute of Physics reports that physics majors scored the highest of all majors on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and second highest on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).
