The Career Center's Career Guide for Physics

Each Career Guide highlights curriculum requirements, as well as skills and abilities that may be developed and applied through each course of study. To complement the academic information, a range of interesting occupational opportunities are listed as a starting point for considering how academic experiences may translate to professional work settings. The Career Guide series represents a collaborative effort between The Career Center and numerous academic units.

Why Major in Physics

Completing an undergraduate degree in physics will give you a rich understanding of how the world works. It will also prepare you either for continued study in graduate or professional school, or for careers in industry, education, medicine, and finance.

Physics Advising

Students with any questions about courses or majors in Physics should speak with Physics department advisors. 

Students wishing to pursue a minor in Physics must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the department's designated advisor. 

Advising appointments can be scheduled in the Physics Student Services Office, 1440 Randall Lab [(734) 764-5539] or via the online advising calendar

Physics Help Room

The Physics Help Room was created to help students in Introductory Physics classes. The Help Room is staffed (usually be-tween the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. in the fall and winter, with limited spring hours) with graduate students, undergraduate students, and faculty on a full time basis. Help Room staff are available to answer questions on most undergraduate physics courses. Services in the Physics Help Room are free to all U M students.

Physics Undergraduate Handbook

The Undergraduate Handbook contains most of the information from the Physics Undergraduate student website, but also includes helpful tips on course selection, undergraduate research and applying to graduate school.
