|Description:||Simply put by Acadia?s dedicated professors ? physics is everything. From studying stars beyond our planet, to explaining the shape of a water droplet, a degree in physics helps you understand and explain our world.
Acadia?s physics program is the study of the interrelationships and interactions which are fundamental to understanding how the world works. By understanding these principles, physics graduates have traditionally developed new concepts and new technologies that have enabled them to easily move across disciplines to tackle real-world problems in many fields. After the first year of study, paid student positions are available as help centre tutors and as lab assistants. Following the second and third years, numerous opportunities exist for paid summer research projects, either locally or at an international research facility, like CERN, that may form part of an undergraduate thesis. Group work, teaching in labs or the help centre, student class presentations, summer research, and participation in conferences all contribute to your acquisition of the necessary research and communication skills to pursue graduate studies or secure employment.
