Why Study Physics?

Why should you study physics? Maybe you want to have a job when you graduate -and- make a lot of money? Perhaps you want to go Medical School? How about Law School? Or maybe Business School? Did you know that acceptance into these very competitive programs is (largely) based on your performance on standardized tests like the MCAT, LSAT, & GMAT? Did you know that Physics majors have the highest scores on these tests? That they have the lowest unemployment rates when they graduate? That they have amongst the highest paying jobs with an undergraduate degree in Physics? Besides, PHYSICS IS FUN! Learn more by watching this short clip, and then learn more about the Physics and Astronomy program at James Madison University

Come learn more about Physics & Astronomy at our OPEN HOUSE this Saturday from 9am to noon! Meet students & faculty, tour our labs, watch really cool physics demos, and learn more about the department, our scholarships, and the process at 10am and 11am in Room 2212 in the Physics & Chemistry building!
