Major or Minor in Physics

Study at the forefronts of experimental, theoretical, and computational physics

As a Physics major at Clark, you study the fundamental laws and principles governing the universe, using theory, experiments, models, mathematical analysis and computational techniques.  We teach you to understand physical phenomena and to develop your problem-solving and analytical-thinking skills.  You are encouraged to participate in research in our world-class research facilities and engage in collaborative work with faculty and graduate students.

The unique brand of education we offer successfully prepares our students for graduate studies and also for careers in science, education, engineering, technology, mathematics and any career that involves solving complex problems. Physics, and the new knowledge that comes from ongoing research, can be applied to provide solutions to many of the greatest challenges of modern life, such as managing resources, technology, sustainability and healthcare.
