Description:It’s a study of how the universe works. It’s the study of the tiniest particle – the structure of an atom’s nucleus to the large, vast universe. People who study physics want to learn how the universe works. Physics is for the curious. Your curiosity will take you from the realm of the very tiny − the structure of an atom's nucleus − to the very big − the structure of the universe − and everywhere in between.

Our physics program is for explorers. You can learn about astrophysics and cosmology through one of Atlantic Canada’s largest astronomical telescopes right here at the Grenfell Campus Observatory. Or you may choose to explore the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics or particle physics. You can shape your program so you study exactly what most intrigues you. Your physics degree can be
completed in four years.
