UAA Campus is Open
We are pleased to report the UAA Anchorage campus will open on Wednesday, Dec. 5, following last Friday's earthquake. The Chugiak-Eagle River Campus will remain closed, but classes will resume in alternative locations. Students should check UAOnline for their new meeting location. As you return to campus, we encourage you to check the web page uaa.alaska.edu/earthquakerecovery for important safety tips and resources about how to submit work requests to facilities for repairs. Please continue to check our Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates.
Physics is the universal science. It is the rational development of experiments, observations, and theories to explain the fundamental structure of the universe. Physicists study everything from the smallest subatomic particles to the entire universe.
The laws that physicists have discovered form the basis for understanding the world and also for making the devices and machines that we see and use everyday.
The Physics minor will provide a valuable option especially to Engineering, Math, Computer Science, Chemistry, Biological Sciences, or Geological Sciences majors. It is widely known that a strong physics background increases a graduate's employability.
