What will I learn in Physics?

Physics is one of the natural sciences. The study of physics is about matter and energy, forces and fields, waves and particles, space, and time. You will learn what makes the universe tick.  Physics forms the basis of all the sciences.  

How will I benefit from studying Physics?

When studying physics, you will be training your mind to think analytically and not let your emotions cloud your judgement. You will learn to solve problems by breaking them down into tiny, more manageable pieces. You will also learn how most things are connected in the physical world. 

Are there any special considerations?
