School of Physics
The Physics major will provide students with a sound basis from which to pursue a broad range of careers in areas including research and development, education, and business. Graduates will gain a deep understanding of the physical world and develop skill in analysis, problem solving and critical thinking that will enable them to adapt to a wide range of tasks in research, teaching and management.
This major will integrate knowledge principally from physics and mathematics to provide students with the necessary tools to think critically about the world around them and how it works. Students should develop a range of theoretical and experimental skills that will allow them to make critical assessments, solve problems, and develop new concepts in a broad range of work environments.
Physics Major Graduates should demonstrate:
|Structure & Available Subjects:|| |
Completion of 50 points of study at Level 3.
There are two specialisations within the Physics major.
PLEASE NOTE: This major will be undergoing a change to its third year Physics subjects in 2017. Students wishing to undertake this major who have only completed first year Physics subjects must complete PHYC20012 Thermal & Quantum Physics, PHYC20015 Special Relativity & Electromagnetism and PHYC20013 Labratory & Computational Physics 2 to be prepared for the major in 2017.
PHYC20009, PHYC20010 and PHYC20011 should only be taken in 2016 by students who have already completed one or more of these subjects.
