After Beloit

Equipping You for Post-Graduation Life and Work: Portable Skills and Flexibility of Mind

As a student of Physics, Engineering, and Astronomy, you’ll  learn to write clearly and persuasively, speak effectively in public, and develop strong intercultural skills on a campus that celebrates diversity and inclusion. You’ll also engage beyond the classroom, through research and internships, extra-curriculars, volunteering, campus jobs, and/or serving as a teaching assistant, tutor, or resident hall assistant.

Is the department’s holistic approach to education effective? Yes, as our alumni’s stories attest.

Mark Anderson’17

From Physics to Food Safety in a Candy Factory

Mark Anderson’17 graduated from Beloit College as a physics major, but much as he liked the brain work involved, he wanted a career where the impact on people would be more immediately clear. Today he works in food safety at Badger Murphy.

Sarah Katz’07

From Physics 102 to Space Exploration

Sarah Katz’07 always knew she wanted to work on space exploration, but initially worked in IT after graduating from Beloit College. It didn’t take her long, however, to return to the physics and engineering studies she had focused on at Beloit. As a result, she’s now a lead radiation engineer for the Europa Clipper mission to Jupiter.
