Earn a Bachelor of Science – Physics Major at Thompson Rivers University
Thompson Rivers Universy offers the Physics major in two study streams — with or without the co-operative work-experience option. The academic specialization of this degree prepares students for further study (graduate) in physics and astronomy while the co-op aspect provides a wide range of practical and hands-on experience in applied scientific fields.
|Intake:||September / January / May|
Physics graduates have gone on to work as teachers, professors, engineers, medical physicists, research scientists, astronomers, automotive industry, electronics and audio industry, manufacturing industry, laboratory technicians, and space research.
Before coming to TRU, I couldn’t even imagine how fast my life would change here. TRU gave
me all the opportunities I was looking for to unearth my true potential. I’ve met people from
various parts of the world, gained real-world work experience and most importantly, I have
learned more about myself. Being a part of the TRU community has been one of the most
meaningful and rewarding experiences in my life. One of the best things I did in my program
was my co-op. I put my learning into direct practice right away and that helped me secure a full
time position after I graduated.
