Why Study Physics at SPSU?
The physics department at SPSU is committed to provide leaders to the society. Under
the guidance of polytechnic discipline, our students find it easier to apply physics
to their chosen career.
Students who aspire to industry positions that are on the cutting edge of science
and engineering technology find that a degree in Physics from SPSU is a better choice.
Our Physics degree offers students the flexibility to add a minor field of study to
the Physics major, which allows them to diversify their experiences and opens up a
wider world of career opportunities.
In addition to core courses, you will choose electives to meet your individual career
objectives with the help of a department advisor. Students may choose to add a double

The Physics program is distinguished by small, personalized classes and an outstanding
faculty. All of our Physics professors hold Ph.D.s in the field, and their combined
professional academic experience makes them excellent teachers and mentors.Are there learning opportunities outside the classroom?
Because we believe that students receive a more comprehensive education when they
add work experience to classroom experience, we encourage our students to participate
in internships and co-ops. Our students also participate in various clubs, where they
network with professionals and gain a better of understanding of future possibilities.What can I do with a Physics degree?
Since our Physics program includes courses that meet the educational portion of requirements
for professional engineering in most states, many SPSU students choose engineering
as a career. Others continue the study of Physics at the graduate level, and ultimately
go into teaching, research, law, or medicine. The listing of companies that have hired
SPSU graduates with a degree in Physics is long: It includes Argonne Labs, BellSouth
Mobility, Cape International Management, Inc., Georgia Department of Agriculture,
Institute of Paper Science and Technology, Inc., Law Engineering and Environmental
Services, Inc., NASA, National Science Foundation, the Southern Company,
