|Description:||Physics is the study of matter and energy at all scales, from the sub-nuclear to the dimensions of the universe. It is the fundamental science-all other sciences and technologies rely on the principles of physics. As a science, it involves observing and understanding natural phenomena.
The University of Lethbridge physics department offers a comprehensive physics major program. The foundation is built in the first two years by a study of mechanics, waves, electricity and magnetism, optics, thermal physics, and modern physics. In the third and fourth years, students deepen their understanding of the fundamentals, and study more advanced and specialized areas. The most specialized topics may include the research interests of the members of the physics department.
