Physics is the study of matter and energy and their interactions in the fields of mechanics, acoustics, heat, electricity, magnetism, optics, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, condensed matter, and cosmology.  A physics major is a good choice for students planning a career in scientific research, engineering, and teaching.  Augustana's program prepares students who have these goals, within the context of a liberal arts foundation.
