WLC students using equipment in physics lab


物理 forms the basis of much of modern science 和 technology. Cellphone 和 satellite communication; autonomous cars, 火箭, 和 drones; magnetic resonance imaging; atomic clocks — what do these technologies have in common?

Those who created them studied physics.

纵观历史, those who have studied physics (from Aristotle to Heisenberg to today's scientists) have been motivated by a desire to underst和 nature 和 to try to answer not just technical, but deeply philosophical questions. Would you like to join the conversation?

Engage in meaningful undergraduate reSearch alongside expert faculty

Recent student reSearch experiences have involved the design 和 construction of scientific equipment, analog 和 digital electronic circuitry, computational 和 experimental modeling of ocean tides 和 atmospheric dynamics, data acquisition 和 image processing, 光谱学, 色谱法, 和 materials science. In these reSearch projects, students learn how science is done—from designing an experiment 和 collecting data to scientific writing 和 publication.

You will learn to think clearly 和 accurately about science 和 technology 和 their impact on society.

的WLC physics department has received generous grants from federal 和 state agencies such as the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, 和 the NASA Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium.

Tailor your education to meet your career aspirations

信誉最好的网投平台排名,你可以 design your education to meet your passions 和 aspirations so you can be prepared to live your purpose. Our physics major is easily pairable with other majors at WLC to allow you the flexibility to craft a college experience that meets your career goals, while ensuring that you still graduate in four years.

Give yourself an edge by pairing your study of biology with a major or minor in physics

Cross-disciplinary work at the intersection of biology 和 physics has recently led to rapid advances in such fields as molecular machines, 纳米技术, 数学生物学, 医学成像, 神经科学, 激光手术, 辐射生物物理学, 核医学.

Maximize your impact by complementing an education major with a physics degree

The Unites States has a shortage of teachers who are able to teach in the mathematical 和 physical sciences. Maximize your impact by complementing an education major with a major or minor in physics.

Make your mark by combining physics with art 和 graphic design, or even music

Leonardo da Vinci, Herman von Helmholtz, Doc Edgerton. Many famous thinkers worked at the boundary between science 和 art, perhaps since these two disciplines share a common history of abstraction, 美, 和 revolutionary ideas. 

Whether you decide to major only in physics, or pair your major with other program offerings, you’ll graduate with knowledge that extends far beyond textbooks.

探索我们的物理 & Engineering Dual-Degree Program

Take classes either two or three years at 威斯康辛州路德 College, 和, having satisfactorily met the requirements for admission to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s (UWM) engineering program, you will take an additional two years of classes at UWM, graduating with both a Bachelor of Science in 物理 degree at WLC 和 a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree at UWM.

在UWM, you’ll receive an education centered around a high-quality engineering curriculum 和 have the opportunity to major in one of the following areas:

  • Biomedical Engineering
  • 土木工程
  • 计算机工程
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Materials Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
