Physics studies natural phenomena from the cosmological scale (galaxies, black holes, quasars)
to the sub-nuclear (quarks, gluons, neutrinos) and everything in between. It plays a vital role
in many new technologies; its fundamental laws find application in almost every branch of science,
engineering, and technology.
If you enjoy science and mathematics, are curious about the basic nature of the universe,
fascinated by advances in technology, you will find the study of physics a challenging and
rewarding way to pursue these interests You will gain the confidence and ability to tackle complex
technical problems. Physicists contribute to a wide spectrum of professional activities in research
laboratories, computer hardware and software development, government, education, medicine, and finance.
Towson University is uniquely situated for the study of physics. Its proximity to the Space
Telescope Science Institute, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and the National Institute of
Standards and Technology permits students to obtain valuable work experience through internships
and other cooperative programs with these and other organizations.
