University Majors

University of California, Davis
Physics, Applied B.S.

An undergraduate degree in applied physics can be excellent preparation for a career or graduate work in a variety of fields, from sciences such as oceanography or geology to law school, banking or medicine. The major combines the principles of physics with practical expertise in one of seven specialties: atmospheric physics, chemical physics, computational physics, geophysics, materials science, physical electronics or physical oceanography. For example, a degree in applied physics with a computational physics specialty gives you a background in programming and allows you to approach problems through computation, an important skill as technology spreads increasingly throughout modern life.
