From the cosmic forces that shaped our universe to the electric current that feeds a light bulb, from the forces that allow a jet to fly to the acoustics that allow a violin to make music, physics answers questions concerning the laws of matter and of natural forces.

The basic laws of physics govern most of the natural phenomena of our world, and they serve as the basis for all other sciences (biology, chemistry, geology, astronomy); this makes a Physics minor valuable for any science major. The competence in critical thinking and logical processes gained in the study of physics is useful in any career a student may pursue after graduation. Graduates with backgrounds in physics pursue careers in government or the military, computer science, technological and health industries, financial services, library science, education, communication, law and medicine.
