Physics examines the fundamental principles that govern natural phenomena, ranging in scale from collisions of subatomic particles; through the behavior of solids, liquids, and bio molecules; to exploding stars and colliding galaxies. The program aims to help students experience the intellectual stimulation of studying physics and the excitement of frontline research, understand the basic principles and techniques of physics-related careers, and prepare for graduate study in physics or related fields. The biomedical physics program seeks to understand the role of physical processes occurring on molecular, cellular, or macroscopic scales; in vital biological functions, ranging from the interaction of chemicals with DNA, to the extraction of oxygen from red blood cells, to the generation of complex electrical signals in the brain and nervous system; and physical principles of medical devices. The biomedical physics program also offers a premed (pre health) specialized track.
