As one of the most fundamental science disciplines, physics is an excellent area of study for students seeking to understand how the universe works. At its most basic, physics is the study of energy and force. At its most complex, physics reveals the mathematical beauty of the universe at scales ranging from subatomic to cosmological.

Students can generate sophisticated models to predict matters’ motion and behavior through spacetime, test hypotheses about how matter and energy interact, or investigate how the different forces shape our universe. Studying physics develops students’ problem-solving and critical thinking skills, thus preparing them for a variety of careers, as physics drives all technological advancements and impacts most facets of society, the environment, and the economy.
