Published: 2014-02-24

The Physics and Engineering Department at Eastern Nazarene College provides a number of programs that demand hard work, a serious attitude about academics and individual goals, and a commitment to excellence. Students leave our programs well prepared for the workplace and graduate studies.   Some new research has shed light into the career prospects and employment outlook for students majoring in Physics.  The Statistical Research Center (SRC) of the American Institute of Physics has been collecting and disseminating data on the physics community for more than 50 years. Their website contains the most recent data on education and employment trends in physics, astronomy and related fields.
Below are some of the recent numbers for Physics Majors.
