  • Why Study Physics? | PhysTEC @ Cornell
    the basis for most modern technology and for the tools and instruments used in scientific engineering and medical research and development Manufacturing is dominated by physics based technology Physics helps you to help others Doctors that don t understand physics can be dangerous Medicine without physics technology would be barbaric Schools without qualified physics teachers cut their students off from a host of well respected well paying careers Students who study physics do better on SAT MCAT and GRE tests Physics majors do better on MCATs than bio or chem majors Majoring in physics provides excellent preparation for graduate study not just in physics but in all engineering and information computer science disciplines in the life sciences including molecular biology genetics and neurobiology in earth atmospheric and ocean science in finance and economics and in public policy and journalism Physics opens the door to many career options More options in fact than almost any other college subject Conversely not taking physics closes the door to more career options You can t become an engineer or a doctor without physics you re far less likely to get a job in teaching your video games will be boring and your animated movies won t look realistic and your policy judgments on global warming will be less compelling College and corporate recruiters recognize the value of physics training Although the number of job ads specifically asking for physicists is smaller than e g for engineers the job market for those with skills in physics is more diverse and is always strong Because physics encourages quantitative analytical and big picture thinking physicists are more likely to end up in top management and policy positions than other technical professionals Of the three top science related positions in the U S government two Energy Secretary and

  • Physics at Cornell | PhysTEC @ Cornell
    Department offers a broad range of physics courses for the entire Cornell community The Physics Major in the College of Arts and Sciences is designed to serve all students whose primary undergraduate focus is to develop mastery of the skills and concepts of physics All Physics Majors are required to complete a core of physics and math courses This is comprised of a three semester introductory physics sequence upper level math courses and five additional upper level physics courses Cornell s Major program is extremely flexible To accommodate the needs of students with a wide spectrum of possible interests and ultimate goals there are two approaches to the major an inside concentration and an outside concentration Students who choose to be inside concentrators focus the bulk of their studies within physics and take several upper level physics courses beyond the Major s core requirements An inside concentration is the principal path to professional or graduate work in physics and closely related fields Students who choose to be outside concentrators complete the Major core and then take several courses in other subjects aimed at developing competency in a second area of interest An outside concentration provides more flexibility for those who
