California State University, San Marcos
Physics (Applied) B.S. Applied Physics Option

Physics is a study of the fundamental macroscopic and microscopic properties of nature, from the building blocks of matter to the origin, extent, and future of the universe itself. Physicists seek to measure, understand, model, and control the processes in the physical world around us. To this end, physicists use a variety of descriptive and quantitative techniques to represent their knowledge.
This option is intended for those students who wish to pursue a career in industry where the application of the principles of physics might be important in modeling, or in research and development.
