Physics

The Department of Physics offers a comprehensive program of study leading to the B.S. degree in Physics. This program is designed to prepare students not only for advanced graduate studies in physics or a related field, but also for employment upon graduation in physics and other disciplines related to science and technology. Basic courses give  students a solid foundation in the concepts of classical and modern physics and assist them in developing their analytical reasoning and problem-solving skills. Laboratory courses complement this experience with an opportunity to develop experimental skills and a working knowledge of advanced technology. Students are strongly encouraged to further develop all these skills by participating in advanced experimental, analytical, or computational research under the supervision of faculty mentors. The Department of Physics strongly encourages physics majors to engage in research, and we will make every effort to find a suitable research opportunity for all interested students with our faculty members.
