Physics focuses on the investigation of natural phenomena, propelling many advancements in present-day science and technology. The mission of the Department of Physics is to provide undergraduate students with an outstanding educational foundation, consisting of comprehensive and rigorous coursework, laboratory training and hands-on research experience.
Our department’s experiential learning opportunities provide students with the chance to deepen their understanding of the world beyond the typical classroom setting.
Professional physicists typically pursue careers in teaching, research or some combination of the two. Teaching opportunities are available at the secondary, community college, or university level, where professors often engage in their own research projects.
