The physics department at Rollins provides students with the opportunity to pursue a degree in physics in a vibrant, liberal-arts environment.
Physics provides a foundation for students interested in engineering — the application of physical principles to the design of products and processes needed in today’s technological world. Future engineers may concentrate in physics for the first three years at Rollins and then transfer to one of the engineering schools with which the college participates in a 3/2 dual-degree program.

Some Rollins physics graduates teach or work in industry while others pursue master’s of business administration degrees (MBA). Many physics majors go on to graduate school in specialized areas of physics, while others continue in such fields as astronomy, oceanography, materials science, and applied physics. Since physics majors know how to solve problems and use technology, they find interesting jobs with or without a higher degree.
