Biological Physics


Biological Physics is a discipline that investigates the physical problems presented by biological systems, applying physics principles and techniques to gain new insights into the processes of life. This interdisciplinary major, administered by the Physics Department, is intended to prepare students to contribute to or pursue graduate study in areas of the life sciences and health professions that are increasingly technical, including cell biology, neuroscience, and medical research.

Beyond the Classroom

Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
