Employment Resources and Professions Available to Physics Graduates

Physics can be used in almost every modern career, and can also serve as a career in itself. In addition to physics, common careers include astronomy, education, medicine, dentistry, law, music, optics, computing, weather forecasting, and geophysics.

Graduates with an undergraduate or Master's level degree can work in various industries such as photonics, semiconductors, advanced materials, nanotechnology, energy production, and aeronautics. They can also work in teaching at the post secondary level while doing research at the same time, or at the high school level with an additional education degree.

Most graduates with a PhD are oriented more towards research and development in research institutes, various industries, or research and teaching in universities. Research and development can occur in telecommuncations, the automotive industry, computers, mining, defense, space, the nuclear industry, and hospitals.

A background in physics can also be used for a further degree in engineering, architecture, medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, or law. See these articles for more information. A physics degree can also be combined with a business degree for those who wish to work in management and administration, product development, or sales and marketing of physics-related products.

Physicists who specialize can also work in meteorology, astronomy, geophysics, and physical chemistry.
