As a key example of STEM learning, a physics degree from OBU will provide the opportunity to confront complex topics and sharpen your problem-solving abilities. With a strong emphasis and foundation on math, this degree combines the study of thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, optic and wave motion and physical chemistry.
This degree can lead you to work as an engineer, analyst or researcher or to pursue an advanced degree in the medical field. Our world-class faculty teach you in a small class setting utilizing state-of-the-art equipment.
Benefits of OBU Physics Program
Outstanding Pre-Med Preparation
Our team of world-class professors will guide you throughout your undergraduate experience and help as you apply to medical school. They can personally write a letter of recommendation because they know you individually, and when you earn an interview at a graduate program, our science faculty arrange a mock interview. In the past three years, our graduates have experienced a 100% acceptance rate into medical school within one year after graduation.
Impact of Professors
While learning through lectures and laboratory settings, you will enjoy a small environment with 100% of your instruction taught by professors, not graduate students or teaching assistants. The faculty also serve as your academic and career advisors, which allows them to be more engaged with your personal and academic success. Their roles as science professors extend even greater as they provide one-on-one mentoring helping you to reach your fullest potential as an individual and as a student.
OBU faculty are experts in their fields and will be with you every step of the way.
