A physics degree is evidence to an employer that you have strong analytical, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Software engineering, management consulting, research and development, and teaching are possible with a bachelor's degree. A graduate degree opens many more highly paid possibilities.
Starting salary for physics graduates ranges between $45,000 and $60,000, according to the American Physical Society. Oswego graduates have found work in such places as NASA, Intel, software engineering, medicine and the finance industry — or as valuable educators.
