Quality Teaching, Individual Attention

We are dedicated to quality teaching in the classroom and in the laboratory. We also pride ourselves on the individual attention we give to our students. Upper-level physics courses typically enroll between 10-15 students. Click here for the current Undergraduate Bulletin for the Department of Physics Astronomy (2021-2023).

Student Research Opportunities

Department of Physics/Astronomy faculty are active in many areas of physics research, including:
  • astronomy/astrophysics
  • experimental particle physics (PANDA collaboration)
  • condensed matter physics/nanotechnology
  • physics teaching and learning
  • history and philosophy of physics
 

Most physics majors conduct one-on-one physics research with a faculty member.
