Physics focuses on research and it is one of the oldest academic disciplines that are taught throughout different stages of education. The field primarily focuses on classical, relativistic and quantum mechanics and the on the quantum field theory. Physics degrees focus on explaining the phenomena people observe and experience and, through its discoveries, it has strong influences on mathematics, philosophy, geology and engineering. Humanity owes some of the greatest discoveries of modern society to developments in the field of physics, leading to the creation of lasers, TV, radio, computers, DNA, or nuclear science.

Also known as “the knowledge of nature”, the study of physics makes a significant difference through contributions in technology and theoretical breakthroughs. A Bachelor’s degree in physics includes the study of atoms, condensed matter, optics, astrophysics and many others. Master’s degrees in physics, concentrate more on research and lab experiments, helping students develop essential analytical, problem solving and communication skills.

Strongly connected to mathematics, physics is a field that brings inviting career prospects for those who wish to become lecturers, geophysicists, meteorologists, patent attorneys, researchers or even work for the government.
