A Scranton physics degree has prepared students for an array of careers, from doctoral research to process engineering, from museum curators to technology consultants to university professors. Physicists have a strong foundation in the principles of engineering and the scientific process, making many different trajectories within reach.

Join the ranks of the best and brightest — our graduating seniors work in companies known for securing top talent, and many still continue their education while balancing their career.

"Historically, our graduates in their first years in the workforce are the highest paid compared to their peers in any other department in the University."

Juan Serno, Ph.D., Professor
