The University of Northern British Columbia is ranked as one of Canada’s best small universities with a core campus in Prince George and regional campuses throughout northern BC. The Physics Program currently offers a Physics BSc degree, joint degrees with Mathematics, Computer Science and Chemistry and an MSc degree. Physics is the study of nature at its most fundamental level. As such, it is the science upon which all other sciences and technologies are based. Because it is so basic, a major in physics is ideal preparation, not only for further study in physics, but also for advanced study in such diverse fields as biophysics, medicine, astrophysics, chemical physics, engineering, meteorology, and computer science.
