Beautiful Mystery

Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

Learn the fundamental laws of physics, develop your passion for knowledge and innovation, and discover how to apply what you are learning. Physics is the study of how the world works. It is the science that seeks to understand the laws of nature, and the relationship between energy and matter. Physics encompasses the study of the universe from the largest galaxies and black holes to the smallest subatomic particles. It is the basis of many other sciences, including chemistry, oceanography, seismology and astronomy, and can be applied to biology or medical science.
