辅修 物理

It is part of our human nature to wonder about the universe around us. 它以这样的问题开始:东西是由什么组成的? 闪电是如何产生雷声的? 为什么天空是蓝色的? 物理学是我们寻找答案的地方. The explanations we seek come from the evidence and arguments that are the discipline of physics.

Understand why physics is the foundation of all sciences and engineering

You’ll learn how physics forms the foundation of almost all branches of science and technology — how it has provided the microscopic basis for chemistry and stimulated important development in mathematics, 例如. It underpins all of engineering and forms the basis for the pure and applied sciences, 包括生命科学.

有物理学背景, you can pursue a number of scientific careers — university and government laboratory re搜索, 产业研发, 应用科学与工程, 生物和医学, 环境研究, 以及各个层次的教学.

培养基于证据和分析能力

物理学这门学科具有严格的分析性, and that’s an especially useful learning experience today. Producing evidence and then arguing from that evidence is one of the most important life skills of the 21st century. 这是一项可以在科学领域开创许多职业的技能, 甚至更多, to some outstanding careers outside of the field of science.

The study of physics sharpens your ability to develop ideas, 批判性的思考, 也是最重要的, 更多地了解细节. 这在法律实践中同样重要, 在开办一家新公司的过程中, or in the development of quantum computers as it is in the study of cosmology.
