Physics

If you are curious about the basic nature of the physical universe, you should consider becoming a physics major.

Concerned with matter and energy, physics is a science based on precise measurements and broad generalizations. Freely translated, this means that physics is the study of what makes the universe tick - a study encompassing the largest and smallest scales of the universe; a study that attempts to explain all observed phenomena in terms of the least number of rules. The discoveries and laws that have resulted from experimental and theoretical research in physics are basic to many of the other sciences - and to our way of life in the age of high technology.


Physics Majors - Finish at the Kent Campus

Some foundation courses for the physics majors, as well as the Kent Core Requirements, are available at Kent State Stark, but the majors will be completed at the Kent Campus.
