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!
