APU’s math/physics major equips students to apply mathematical models to physical phenomena. The degree provides a solid foundation in general chemistry, calculus, general physics, and thermodynamics.

Throughout the degree, students learn about a Christian’s place in the sciences and the moral and ethical implications of controversial applications of science and technology. Students also learn to describe and assess different views of the relationship between biblical and scientific perspectives of nature. Math/physics majors leave APU prepared to combine mathematics and the physical sciences in order to solve complex problems.
