Applied Physics

If your head is in the stars and your feet are on the ground, consider a degree in Applied Physics. You’ll start by studying some of the same science that other Physics majors learn, from the formation of the solar system to the pull of a magnet. But you'll build on your foundation by concentrating on the practical applications of Physics.

Other Physics majors are typically prepared for graduate school in the field. But the focus in Applied Physics is on entering a career with a bachelor's degree or going to graduate school in non-Physics fields that range from engineering to medical and law school. The keyword in this major is flexibility. The Applied Physics major will want to consider careers in engineering related fields and as technicians. But their problem solving abilities and practicality will make them valuable for a broad range of employers.
