The Applied Physics degree at Coastal Carolina University focuses on the application of physics to particular problems. Students can easily merge their interest in physics with another subject at Coastal Carolina University such as marine science, chemistry, computer science, or mathematics through a minor or double major. Students interested in the 3-2 engineering program with Clemson University, those interested in mechanical or civil engineering, should consider applied physics. Students will receive a strong technical background, which is a good foundation for careers in industry, manufacturing, government, medicine, research and development, quality control, and environmental quality. Students interested in teaching science at the secondary level should also consider an applied physics degree and then pursue the M.A.T. (Master of Arts in Teaching) through the Spadoni College of Education.
