The Bradley Advantage

Bradley’s physics program shows you how the laws of nature affect the world around you at the invisible atomic level. You learn to explain the natural world through physics, chemistry and math principles. The program introduces you to lab research as a freshman, then you can continue research with faculty throughout your Bradley experience. Your academic experience is capped by a senior research project. Though the major can be a standalone academic program, you can pair it with a major such as computer science, chemistry, biology or math.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s physics program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce or graduate school. In recent years, almost all students found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation.  They’re working at Los Alamos National Research Laboratory, Motorola, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Intel and NASA. Others are continuing their education at institutions such as University of Illinois, Georgia Tech, the University of Texas and the University of Wisconsin.

Peoria

Bradley and Peoria share much in common--a diverse population, world-class research facilities, outstanding fine arts and entertainment, and a great sense of community. In this regard, Peoria simultaneously offers the urban benefits of a big city and the personality of a small town.
