Finding the Best Value General Physics School for You

Best Value Bachelor's Degree Colleges for General PhysicsGeneral Physics is the #59 most popular major in the country with N/A bachelor's degrees awarded in 2021-2022.

This year's Best Value Bachelor's Degree Colleges for General Physics ranking looked at 207 colleges that offer a bachelor's in general physics. Note that the phrase 'best value' does not mean the absolute lowest-priced. We are more focused on general physics schools that offer a high quality education at a price lower that other schools of similar academic excellence.

Average cost figures start with estimating tuition, fees, room and board, books, and other related expenses. We then subtract the average amount of financial aid that a student receives. You can use this as a gauge to estimate how much you may need to pay out of pocket to cover costs when financial aid isn't enough. Keep in mind that the net cost for you may be higher or lower, depending on your income and other factors.
