As the most fundamental of sciences, physics deals with energy in all its forms: with the interactions of matter and energy, with the structure of matter and with energytransforming processes. A physics degree will prepare you to become a dynamic and versatile problem solver; that’s a skill that opens many doors. After Wofford, our students pursue graduate school, law school, medical school or enter the workforce in a variety of industries as engineers or other roles in collaborative, professional settings.
