Physics and Astronomy

After becoming well-trained in critical thinking and problem solving, many physics majors move on to computational programs, engineering programs, medical schools, or even business or law degrees. The department also offers a special major for life science (premed) students leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree. UM graduates with degrees in Physics have had exceptionally high acceptance rates (over 95%) at medical schools.
