The Boston area is an ideal place to study the sciences. The region is home to prestigious hospitals and to the world’s largest life-sciences cluster–about 180 biotech companies. Opportunities abound for professional networking, internships, and careers.

The study of physics is an integral part of many other disciplines—astronomy, medical imaging, nanotechnology, earth science, and engineering—and a degree in this field is very versatile.
