The goal of physics is to appreciate how things work from first principles. Physics students study how nature laws can be applied to explain the many phenomena of our world. We attempt physics courses that are matched to a range of goals that students may have in studying physics, contract elective courses to broaden one’s scientific literacy, satisfying demands for a major in the sciences or engineering, or working towards a degree in physics or engineering physics. This skill to apply the simple principles that underlie complicated problems will be receiving students well in the attention and occupation they pursue after graduation.
