A physics education at Furman will change the way you see the world. You won’t just memorize facts and ace tests. You’ll learn how to think and solve complex problems.
By working one-on-one with our faculty and conducting laboratory research that most students don’t experience until graduate school, you’ll understand the most important concepts in physics, such as the nature of subatomic particles and the evolution of the universe. You’ll be able to analyze and explain complex systems through your quantitative and problem-solving skills. As a result, you’ll leave the program with a strong foundation in math and physics, both of which are in high demand in the job market.
We know our approach works, too. Our department graduates an impressive number of physicists each year, often more than much larger institutions.
