Physics seeks to explain the natural world with a comprehensive set of fundamental laws. It teaches you how to describe the universe mathematically. A physics major earned in the context of a liberal arts education prepares you for a wide variety of careers. Governmental, academic, and industrial research are obvious options, but the training you receive in analytical reasoning also prepares you well for medicine, engineering, law, and business. Physics teachers are also in high demand everywhere, and we offer a degree in physics for teachers.
Randolph College has entered into agreements with several schools of engineering to offer a dual degree program in engineering. In these programs, the student will complete a three year degree in engineering physics at Randolph College, and then a two year degree in the chosen field of engineering at the associated school.
