Physics is an integrative discipline that combines general problem-solving techniques with real-world applications and hands-on practice. Not only do physics majors go onto diverse jobs in engineering, medicine, and computer technology, but they also can be found in business, law, and education.
Mary Wash offers both an Applied Physics major for those who want more career flexibility and a traditional Physics major for those planning on graduate school. The physics program at Mary Wash is built around strong personal connections, both with faculty and peer students. We believe that physics is an on-going and shared exploration, filled with a lifetime of curiosity and learning.
