Choose Physics

The choices we make while in college set the trajectory for our life’s journey. What we will do and the type of person we will become are impacted by the decisions that we make as undergraduates. 

Training in physics is empowering and opens the door to career opportunities in areas including science, technology, engineering, medicine, finance, journalism and public policy - more opportunities, in fact, than training in just about any other discipline.  

Cornell's PhysTEC program is designed to help undergraduate and graduate students explore the challenges and rewards of physics and of physics teaching, and how these may fit into their future education and career plans. Cornell's Teacher Education Program offers courses of study leading to teacher certification in physics and many other subjects.
