Our aim is to help you succeed in your academics and to support you in your goals after graduation for whatever career you choose, be it in industry or consulting, teaching, or continuing on to do graduate work if you are an undergraduate. We believe that a strong academic background in physics and your student life while here is good preparation for whatever lies ahead.
We believe in making the Department a welcoming, inclusive, pleasant and productive place for students and for one another. We provide a number of resources to help students navigate their academic career including program advising, career and graduate school workshops, research information and social activities. We have an outstanding number of student organizations (add hyperlink) that also support our students’ experience while at Cal. We encourage you to explore, engage and seek these opportunities!
