Physics, B.S.

Discover your universe.

From the smallest bits of matter to the greater bindings of the universe, physicists determine the "why?" behind the world we see around us.

As a physics degree student at Lewis, you need to love math and experimentation. Because you will live in the lab. Building. Creating. Testing. Breaking new ground.

What can I do with a Physics degree?
A whole lot. High schools want you to teach the next generation of learners as the U.S. tries to take back the lead in the sciences .Research and development departments want you to help explore cutting-edge innovations like nanotechnology. Wall Street will try to steal you away to help them put together economic models. Or you can continue your studies in grad school.

In the Lab from Day One
At larger schools, graduate students monopolize the labs. At Lewis, you're working shoulder-to-shoulder alongside faculty PhDs from the start, putting you in a much stronger position to succeed in both grad school and your future career.

Customized Curriculum
Best of all, we intentionally keep your general curriculum to a minimum, giving you more freedom to explore the elective courses you're most interested in and the areas of study most focused on your goals after Lewis.

    "The Physics program at Lewis is absolutely spectacular. It’s a very close-knit environment. You can talk to your professors about homework problems, get advice on grad school – that’s just something you don’t get at other Universities."
