Physicists idealize the behavior of matter and energy in terms of mathematical representations called the “fundamental laws of nature” and seek to explain the properties of nuclei, atoms, molecules, and systems of these particles (gases, liquids, crystals, etc.). Undergraduate courses provide a background in classical physics, quantum mechanics, and laboratory techniques. A deep understanding of the makeup of the world around you and how that world works provides a foundation to succeed in a technology-infused world. When studying physics, you learn how we understand the universe at its largest (astronomical) scales and at the smallest scales (atoms and subnuclear particles.) You learn how to study problems from the scientific viewpoint, using experiment, simulation, and analytical tools. With a solid physics background you can make informed decisions on the impact of science on your life and your community. Physics courses are designed to develop many skills: problem-solving abilities, electronics, working in small groups in the laboratory or on projects, computation, and many others.
