Bachelor in Physics


Physics is a fundamental science which provides us with a quantitative understanding of our physical environment. Physics is also the foundation of engineering and technology. An understanding of the basic laws of Physics is important in a wide range of occupations. For example, a qualification in Physics has direct application in science teaching, meteorology, communications, environmental science, computing, and electronics. Click here for reasons why you should study Physics. The general skills acquired by studying Physics - analytical skills, logical thinking, measurement, problem-solving and experimental techniques - give students a uniquely broad preparation, applicable in many spheres.

BSc students interested in studying Physics can choose to take Physics as a Single Major, Double Major or Minor. BEd students may choose Physics as their second Major. Other students whose principal interest is not in Physics may, however, be advised or have the option to take Physics courses. This category involves those enrolled in the School's interdisciplinary programmes and the Marine Studies BSc programme. The School also offers one course (PH105: Physics in Today's World) which may be taken as an elective by those students from FST and other Schools with limited prior knowledge of Physics.
