The mathematical physics major is similar to a traditional physics major but places more emphasis on the theoretical and mathematical underpinnings of physics with less emphasis on the experimental, applied, or engineering aspects of physics.
The mathematical physics major is designed to provide:
"I selected mathematics as my major because of the patterns and abstractions of math. The relationships between numbers and functions resemble the beauty with which God created our universe. The fact that math is the language of our universe testifies the glory of God. I like ORU because I can obtain a professional degree while studying in an environment where I can also learn about God."

With a degree in mathematical physics, you will appreciate and understand how the Universe (all of creation) works. You will know how the fundamental forces of nature influence the world around us including being able to understand the underlying mathematical models for these forces. You will also be able to address the philosophical, naturalistic, and teleological implications of physics within a Christian worldview.
Mathematical physics majors are housed in the computing and mathematics department where several faculty members have active undergraduate research programs in which students are encouraged to participate. Professional and honor societies that students and faculty members are active in include:
