Physics is the oldest and most fundamental of the physical sciences involving the study of the physical environment and the behavior and interaction of objects within the universe. Physics majors are highly valued for their analytic problem solving skills and find employment in a variety of fields.
In addition to the traditional fields of teaching and government or industrial research, physicists find employment in such disparate fields as engineering, finance, and patent law.
