Why Study Physics?

Physicists like to ask questions because they are curious about how the world works. They try to find answers for almost everything - from questions as complex to how the universe works to questions of common occurrences such as why soda fizzes.

Physicists are trained to formulate their understanding of a problem in precise terms and to communicate these ideas to others. These skills give physics majors, minors and graduate students a variety of career paths. Many physicists conduct basic research in industry, universities, hospitals and government. Others teach in high schools and colleges. A large number of physicists also go into engineering fields or financial jobs. Nearly any job requiring problem-solving skills will benefit from an employee with a degree in physics.
