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.
Randolph College has a minor in engineering. We have also entered into agreements with several schools of engineering to offer a dual degree program. In these programs, the student will complete a three-year degree in physics at Randolph College, and then a two-year degree in engineering at the associated school.
