Undergraduate Program

The physics major is a gateway to professional life unlike any other. Trained physicists have a developed ability to analyze problems in their purest, and often most abstract conception, and therefore have honed skills that can be generalized to wide swath of professional activities.

Physics majors have held nearly every office and powerful position in the world. There are many potential rewards for students with diverse interests and career objectives, or with still indefinite career objectives, in studying Physics. In the U.S. in the 21st century, physics majors emerge from university among the highest paid science fields in studies that consider the average salary immediately after graduation.

The Physics Faculty of the University of Connecticut invites prospective students, interested in majoring in Physics, to schedule a visit to our Department to investigate whether we can serve his or her educational needs.
