Department of Physics

Welcome to the Department of Physics

The Department of Physics offers a program that combines a comprehensive curriculum in all areas of theoretical and experimental physics with a strong liberal arts component. Course work for a physics degree includes the study of thermodynamics, electromagnetism, electronics, classical and quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, computational physics, and mathematical physics. Our students develop expertise in both the fascinating world of theoretical physics and the intricacies of the experimental realm.  

We also strongly encourage our students to get involved in physics research on and off campus. The University and the Department support a number of student research projects during summers and throughout the academic year. These projects provide excellent learning experiences as well as training for careers in quantitative fields.
