If you are interested in why the physical universe is the way it is, and if you have good math skills, you might consider majoring in physics. Physics majors study the nature of matter and energy, from subatomic particles to the far reaches of the universe. You’ll learn how an understanding of physics forms the basis for explaining many phenomena in other natural sciences, all of which ultimately are based on physics.
Physics also underlies many developments in technology including lasers, transistors, magnetic resonance imaging, and even the world wide web. Physics students take a variety of generalized and specialized courses to meet their own interests. Many have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty doing exciting research at the forefront of physics and astronomy.
