Course description

GY 320 :
Physics is the fundamental science, which seeks to understand the basic laws governing the structure of matter, the nature of energy and the physical forces that form our world. Its span of interest ranges from the nature of the short-range forces which operate inside the atomic nucleus to the origin and structure of the universe.Applied Physics is the study of physics with particular emphasis on technological and practical applications. Astrophysics is the part of astronomy that deals with the physics of the universe, including that of stars, black holes and galaxies. Biomedical Physics is the application of physics to the medical and biological sciences. Theoretical Physics is the application of mathematical tools and models to explain and predict physical phenomena.
If you have an enquiring mind, and are interested in discovering how things work, then this could be the course for you. The direct entry to this physics degree ensures that you study a core physics programme along with an exciting range of specialist options. You will be introduced to these options at the very start of theprogramme. Students do a common first year, and then specialize in one of the four pathways for the remainder of the degree.
