Physics is crucial to understanding how the universe functions, from atoms and subatomic particles to stars, galaxies and cosmological bodies. Physics explores the most fundamental measurable quantities of energy and matter and their patterns and relationships in time and space, translating into theories, formulas and laws.
The goal of physics is ambitious: to find and understand the laws that govern everything in the Universe, from the behaviour of the smallest building blocks of matter to the structure of the space-time and the Universe itself. Therefore, regardless of specialty, a physicist is constantly wondering how to discover new phenomena, understand them, improve current theories and techniques to do so, and figure out how they all fit together.
If you are intrigued by these questions, the Major Concentration Physics might be the perfect fit for you. The Major Concentration Physics, which is restricted to students in the B.A. & Sc. or B.Sc./B.Ed., is a planned sequence of courses designed to permit a degree of specialization in this discipline. This program is insufficient to prepare a student for professional or graduate work in physics; students interested in pursuing a career in physics are advised to take the appropriate B.Sc. program in physics.
Physics is a very broad discipline, meaning that you will have a diverse range of career opportunities after graduation. Your research and laboratory skills and experience will be valuable in many areas.
Depending on your interests and experience, you could become a professional:
- Systems Analyst
- Laboratory Technician
- Forensic Laboratory Technician
