Physics teaches you to be an expert problem solver, which will benefit you no matter what you do in life. Majoring in physics or engineering physics will give you an appreciation for many of nature's most interesting phenomena. And finally, the Department of Physics is just a great place to be at Santa Clara University.

You can do almost anything with a physics or engineering physics degree. Employers know that it takes hard work, intelligence, and creativity to successfully complete a major in physics. Santa Clara Graduates who enter the job market have found employment in a wide range of places including high-tech, business, and education. Those who have chosen to continue their education have gone on to graduate programs in Physics, Engineering and other technical fields, as well as Medical and Law School.
