Prospective Students

If you have ever wondered about the universe, space, and time or what a quantum jump has to do with light and heat, you have been thinking about problems in physics. Physics is a broad field of study centered primarily on finding the answers to two simple yet powerful questions: How and why? Attracting students who have explorative minds, Georgia Tech’s physics program offers degrees in physics and applied physics, where the Bachelor of Science in Physics prepares students for physics graduate programs while the Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics is better suited for entry into industry or preparation for graduate study in some other discipline. The curriculum is well-rounded and flexible, with students choosing their courses to emphasize areas of study such as atomic and molecular physics, biophysics, nonlinear dynamics and chaos, optics, solid-state physics, astrophysics, and pre-medicine.
