Physics

From the structure of the universe to light, atoms, and elementary particles, Drew’s physics program covers it all with an eye toward flexibility to suit student interests and goals. Speaking of goals, roughly 75 percent of our amazing physics students (think national fellowships and awards) pursue advanced degrees after Drew and have ended up at schools like Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, and the U.S. Naval Nuclear Program. Those that opt to jump into the job market often end up in fields like engineering, finance, and game-changing lab research. The possibilities are endless.
