Physics

Imagine yourself waking up in the morning to explore the same halls walked by the greatest physicists of the past, tracing their work through historical and scientific perspectives.  Or maybe you would rather shoot for an internship at CERN, the world’s largest particle accelerator where the earth-shattering discovery of the Higgs Boson just transpired.

Studying abroad in physics can offer you the opportunity to gain a new perspective of the multi-cultural facet of science.   Physics has always been an intercultural effort striving for novel discoveries, so even studying similar physics coursework at a foreign university can be deeply impactful and beneficial to your career.

For pursuing these opportunities, please investigate our partnership universities and non-GVSU programs for science courses that suit your interests.  Also keep scientific internships abroad on your radar.
