The courses in physics are concerned with the laws and properties of matter and the topics of mechanics, energy, sound, heat, light, electricity and magnetism. A major in physics would serve as a basis for work in industry, government or teaching in one of those areas. The courses in physics find applications in many related areas, including chemistry, biological sciences, engineering, geophysics, astronomy, oceanography, meteorology, environmental sciences and mathematics.
