    Description

    A physics degree opens up a rich diversity of options to the graduating student. Approximately one-half of physics graduates go on to graduate school. Those not going on to graduate school enter employment in physics or such related fields as electronics, computers, or engineering, or as teachers. Reflecting the diversity of the major, there are two tracks open to physics undergraduates.

    The first option is the traditional one and is intended for those who are interested in experimental and theoretical physics as well as computational physics, and those who will be going on to graduate school. The second option emphasizes the application of computers to physics. A combination of skills in both physics and computer science is a valuable training for industrial employment.
    Options:
    • Traditional Physics
    • Computational Physics

    Course Content

    A physics curriculum provides the knowledge of fundamental science needed for a deep understanding of these ideas. A degree in physics opens a rich diversity of options to the graduating student. Approximately one-half of physics graduates go on to graduate school. Those not attending a graduate program enter employment in physics or such related fields as electronics, computers, engineering, and teaching.
    Rutgers-Camden’s Department of Physics offers a flexible degree program to its majors. Students will be prepared for both graduate study and industrial employment. In the classroom, they will receive well-rounded exposure to classical and modern physics. For practical training, the department is equipped with advanced materials characterization equipment, lasers, optics, and vacuum equipment. Students with an interest in Computational Biophysics can access high performance computing facilities under the supervision of faculty.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
