Program Summary

The Hiram physics major helps students develop critical thinking, problem-solving and quantitative skills that enable them to tackle problems through a multifaceted approach of:

  • experimental,
  • theoretical, and
  • computational.

Physics majors gain invaluable practice communicating technical topics in both written and oral forms. They frequently work in teams—a structure followed and valued by many employers—to produce solutions that are more thorough and in-depth than any one person could accomplish on his or her own.
