                               Physics Major

 Physicists are focused on researching the nature of
the universe and everything in it, from the infinitely
vast reaches of space to the infinitesimally tiny scale
                of subatomic particles.

These scientists observe and measure natural
   phenomena, interpret the results, use
 mathematics to develop theories to explain
what they have observed, and then apply the
 knowledge they have gained to design new
        and innovative technologies.

Physicists generally choose a specific subfield
    to specialize in, including atomic and
   molecular physics, elementary particle
 physics, optics, nuclear physics, condensed
matter physics, plasma physics, acoustics, or
                space physics.

And some physicists go even further and limit
 themselves to a subdivision of one of these
     subfields, such as the subdivisions of
   superconductivity, crystallography, and
    semiconductors within the subfield of
          condensed-matter physics.

   Most physics jobs today are focused on basic
  research and development which are areas that
usually require a doctoral degree with its rigorous
training in theory, methodology and mathematics.

   And additional experience and training
through a postdoctoral research fellowship,
  although not strictly required, is usually
 recommended for physicists who want to
   hold permanent positions doing basic
  research at universities and government
                laboratories.
