What is Physics?
Physics is the most basic science of the universe. It involves the study of everything in physical existence, from the smallest subatomic particles to the entire universe as a whole. This includes studies of the natural laws which govern, for example, all chemical, biological, nuclear, electromagnetic, thermodynamic, and gravitational processes. Since these laws must be common to all the sciences, a B. S. degree in physics provides a solid foundation from which to launch almost any career in a scientific or technical area.
