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.
