Aims of the Program

Studying physics can be a valuable part of a broad education. Students who combine mastery of the basic principles and methods of physics with the outlook and adaptability provided by a liberal Christian education will find themselves well-prepared for a variety of careers. Recent physics graduates have gone into top graduate and professional schools and have successfully entered careers in industry.

The objectives of the physics program are to prepare students for a professional career or graduate study, provide the training required by other programs and professional schools, and support the general education program of the University by providing courses of instruction for non-science students.
