What exactly can you do with a physics degree? The answer, quite simply is anything you want! Physics teaches you not only about the physical world, but how to think as well. This makes physics majors one of the best-prepared college graduates. You might find yourself working for NASA, Google, or IBM. You're not limited to just research and development either. With a degree in physics you'll be a top candidate for professional programs in law or medicine. It doesn't stop there either. Physics majors can become anything from fighter pilots to financial analysts, video game designers to influential politicians. The dilemma for physics majors is rarely "where can I get a job?" but rather, "which job should I choose?"
