In the Year That Celebrates Einstein, Physics Is a "Hot" Major
Tuesday, April 05, 2005

Just in time for the world celebration of physics and its most famous practitioner, Albert Einstein, the University at Buffalo is enjoying a banner year in the discipline.

This semester, the total number of physics majors at UB has jumped to 73, an impressive 82.5 per cent increase over January 2002, when there were just 40.

"Startling, isn't it?" is the happy observation of Michael Fuda, Ph.D., professor and undergraduate director for the Department of Physics in the UB College of Arts and Sciences.

When students sign up as physics majors, Fuda routinely asks, "Why physics?"

"They typically say 'I took it in high school and I liked it,'" says Fuda.
