A Bachelor of Science in physics is excellent preparation for careers that require analytical or quantitative work. The physics major at The University of Southern Mississippi is designed to prepare students for advanced study in physics (master’s and doctorate) or to obtain technical positions in the industrial and governmental sectors. In addition, physics is a gateway into other areas such as astronomy, biophysics, chemistry, computational science, geophysics, engineering, medicine, oceanography, patent law and radiology.
Students entering into the physics major are assumed to have completed algebra, geometry and trigonometry in high school. Students with questions about their mathematics preparation should talk with an advisor in the physics program.
