The Physics Lynk: Classroom to Career
One major, many career paths
A physics major is extremely flexible, providing solid analytic grounding, quantitative skills, and communication skills that are transferable to virtually any career. Typical directions include teaching, design, engineering, consulting, finance, public service, or continuing on to medical school or graduate school in a number of engineering and physics-related areas.
Students should plan ahead in order to position themselves for an internship, study abroad, or graduate school opportunities. Consult these resources closely and talk to your advisor.
