Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois

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.
