You might be surprised by the range of career options a physics degree opens up for you. When you study physics, you learn a lot about how the physical world works. But you'll also gain computer skills, master powerful mathematical tools, get hands-on experience with sophisticated electronics, and build strong laboratory skills.
At the core of an education in physics are the analytical skills you will learn and master – the ability to tackle complex problems, break them down, analyze the pieces, and synthesize a solution. In short, physicists are master problem solvers. These skills will lead to success in almost any career and are highly valued by employers of all kinds.
