Physics and 3-2 Engineering

The Department of Physics encourages you to appreciate the beauty, order, and complexity of the physical universe and to be effective stewards of God's creation.

Typically after four years of study at Gordon College, you can earn a bachelor's degree in physics.

Or, you can participate in our 3-2 Engineering Program and earn both a physics bachelor's degree and an engineering bachelor's degree. Receive uncompromised preparation for transferring to an engineering program while receiving the distinctive liberal arts experience that is Gordon. Learn more about our 3-2 engineering program.

  • Admission to graduate school
  • Teaching high school physics
  • Employment in government or industry doing:
    • research
    • development
