  • Physics 

    Lasers, the internet, and space travel all exist thanks to physics. Physics attempts to understand the laws of nature and the relationship between energy and matter. 

    A broad field, it encompasses mathematics, engineering, communications, biology, and electronics and provides students with critical thinking and problem solving skills. Physics majors are thus equipped for a wide variety of careers and graduate work from teaching to aerospace engineering.

    Our program focuses on opportunities for students to do meaningful, comprehensive research projects. These range from a first-year class allowing students to do independent research in lieu of the standard general physics lab, through a junior-level full-year course on a single project, to an honors project with plenty of summer research opportunities in between. Our coursework provides content and skills to allow students to be successful in these research endeavors.
