Physics and mathematics have a lot in common: both disciplines attempt to understand the world and how it works. Math provides one of the most basic building blocks of physics, and physics in turn offers countless opportunities to apply mathematical ideas.

At Catholic University, you can combine these two fields with a mathematics and physics major. Catholic University's core liberal arts curriculum will strengthen your writing, logic, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, supplementing what you learn in your math and science classes. At Catholic University, your professors will challenge you to look beyond definitions and formulas as you examine the historical and philosophical origins of math and physics.

Catholic University students have the unique opportunity to get involved in faculty research projects or complete internships with laboratories in Washington, D.C. These firsthand learning experiences allow you to participate in the cutting edge of research and technology, and give you a professional advantage after graduation.
