Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Faculty:Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Physics, General
Description:

Physicists ask questions such as: How is matter converted into energy? What forces keep planets in orbit? How do quarks decay?



Physics is the study of laws that govern the behaviour and interaction of energy and matter. Physicists seek to understand the ways that matter and energy interact through experiment, observation and mathematical models. Physical interactions are fundamental to many phenomena in Nature and form the basis of our understanding of the universe. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class, during tutorials, and in the laboratory. This degree will provide you with a strong foundation in applied mathematics, chemistry, physics, advanced physics and applied physics.
