From sub-atomic particles to the origin and structure of the universe, physics uses the language of mathematics to discover, describe, and apply the fundamental laws of nature.
Our physics curriculum provides study in mechanics, electricity and magnetism, thermal physics, optics, modern and quantum physics, digital electronics and computer interfacing, and experimental physics.
The Physics Program enhances students’ capacity for analysis, synthesis, and inductive and deductive reasoning. Physics students learn to plan and conduct scientific experiments and to communicate the concepts of physics in oral, written, and mathematical form. A majority of physics majors participate in collaborative research with a faculty member.
