Physics is an eminently practical field. It has been called the science of pushing things around. Physics is also the most speculative and theoretical of the natural sciences, asking questions about the world at its most fundamental levels—those of motion, force, energy, and matter.
Lakeland’s physics courses are centrally important for any student majoring in the natural sciences. More broadly, though, they sharpen any student’s analytical and problem-solving abilities. Physics teaches us why the world looks and acts the way it does, but it also allows us to exercise our imagination as we explore, with scientific precision, the origins of the universe and the very nature of reality.
Note: While listed as electives, these courses are included in certain majors and minors as required coursework.
