What Sets Us Apart?

  • Private Nonprofit University
  • 600+ Online Degrees
  • No Standardized Testing for Admission
  • Transfer in up to 75% of an Undergrad Degree
  • Transfer in up to 50% of a Grad/Doctoral Degree

Choosing where to pursue your degree is an important decision. You need a program that can help you meet your career goals and an institution that aligns with your beliefs. Here are some of the reasons Liberty stands out:

  • Liberty University is accredited by SACSCOC, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.
  • Our B.S. in Physics is the first bachelor’s degree of its kind to be offered 100% online.
  • The professors in this program have real-life experience in analytics, engineering, laboratory work, and other related fields.
  • Each of your courses will be taught from a Christian perspective – so you can graduate knowing how to incorporate biblical principles into your work.
  • Our online format gives you the flexibility to devote time to your family, work, and other responsibilities while earning your degree.

Your physics degree can prepare you with knowledge in mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity, and more. You can learn all you need to start your career as a physicist or another related position. Plus, you will complete a capstone course that will help you take all that you have learned and turn it into a research project that synthesizes your knowledge.

Three of our physics courses contain laboratory components. The labs are designed to be comparable to those in a residential setting, with the aim being to help you solidify the textbook concepts through firsthand experience. The labs leverage our university MATLAB site license, which allows for real-time data acquisition from an electronic sensor that is shipped to you in a lab kit – whether it be to measure motion, magnetic fields, light intensity, etc.

You’ll then analyze the data in MATLAB, which gives you valuable experience using industry-grade software. After successfully completing the lab courses, you can prepare to handle electronics, microcontrollers, and sensors as well as perform data analysis with MATLAB – all skills that can strengthen your skill set as an aspiring physicist, engineer, or other technical professional.

Upon graduation, you will be able to:

  • Systematically explore physical phenomena by setting up experiments, collecting and analyzing data, and interpreting the results.
  • Understand fundamental physics principles as well as foundational concepts within its branches of mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics.
  • Understand how the cosmos and laws of physics support a creator and biblical worldview.
  • Use mathematical techniques for problem-solving.
