Physics is crucial to understanding the world around us, the world inside us, and the world beyond us. It is the most basic and fundamental science. Physics challenges our imaginations with concepts like relativity and string theory, and it leads to great discoveries, like computers and lasers, that change our lives. The physics department at CSUEB offers a comprehensive curriculum with a hands-on philosophy to learning that includes seven laboratory courses and a strong emphasis on undergradate research. The program prepares students for careers in basic research, science education, engineering and is an excellent foundation for professional school in medicine and patent law.
