Compare 20 Bachelor Programs in Physics

Bachelor of Physics programs are designed to teach theoretical and practical aspects of physics. Professionals with Bachelor of Physics degrees often work in research, academia, engineering, science, and military, as well as information technology firms and consulting agencies.

Bachelor of Physics programs aim to give students the general fundamentals of physics as well as those of related disciplines such as mathematics. Throughout the various types of programs, a choice is offered between fundamental physics, applied teaching, bi-disciplinary or multidisciplinary studies. Since a Bachelor of Physics is geared towards research or academia, a practicum is usually obligatory in a laboratory or an academic setting. Additionally, Bachelor of Physics programs are often multidisciplinary allowing graduates to be more versatile and well-rounded, being prepared for work or post graduate education.

If you are scientifically and mathematically inclined, then a Bachelor of Physics may be the degree for you. Take a look through the programs below and learn more about the opportunities!

How does nature works and how can we use it? By making models and formulating natural laws, we can describe and predict the natural world. It leads to experimental research and practical applications. The Bachelor of Physics at the University of Groningen teaches you all you need to know about physics and the natural world.

Physics is a 'hard' science: it is concerned with hard figures, precise and pure measurements. These are used to produce models and explain natural phenomena. The Bachelor's programme in Physics lasts three years. During your 1st year, you will study basic subjects such as linear algebra and relativity. You will also take practical courses. After this year, you can choose between three specializations:... [-]

What is Physics?

Physics is a science that helps us understand how the universe expands, what are black holes, how GPS and cell phones work, how subatomic particles interact or how DNA is coiled inside a virus. In addition, it challenges the imagination with creativity, to find relationships and patterns between objects that are apparently unrelated.

Physics contributes directly to the development of science and the development of new technologies; With a single equation we can describe phenomena as different as sound and light, or movements as different as the fall of an apple and the orbits of the planets.

Physics as a discipline is central to all the natural sciences. Its applications are evident in all the technological advances in our present-day society.

Students will find our physics major excellent preparation for graduate school or for certification in teaching at the mid-school and secondary levels.

Physics is a natural science that strives to accurately explain matter and energy at a very fundamental level. Mathematics is the primary language used in the field to communicate concepts that qualitatively and quantitatively describe natural phenomena, which is not only responsible for physical but also chemical and biological processes.

Physics is strictly an experimental science, which means that ideas come solely from experimentation and observation. Physics Majors at GC will honor the boundaries of physics, but also be encouraged to step outside and appreciate and acknowledge God's handiwork.... [-]
