Course Description

One definition of Physics is that it is “the study of matter, energy, and the interaction between them”. It is a broad field that includes heat, light sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms. It is one of the most complex and abstract sciences to understand.

A degree in physics equips you with highly critical skills that include: analytical and problem solving skills that are in demand in many fields, which offer a sound background for understanding an increasingly technological society. Additionally, the course equips you with experience for life-long learning in a rapidly changing world; mathematical skills that can be applied in wide ranging environments; computational skills that are marketable in many sectors of the economy.

The course at Wits covers the fundamental concepts of classical physics and covers some modern physics topics.

Good partner subjects are Computer Science and Computational and Applied Maths. Adding Chemistry opens the route to Materials Science. Adding Geography adds a route to Geophysics.
