Understand the complex laws of our universe — from the tiniest particles to the largest galaxies. Pursue a major or minor in physics to collaborate with accomplished faculty and like-minded peers. You'll be prepared for careers in physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science and more. Learn the fundamental principles of the universe as you develop strong analytical skills. Learn foundational knowledge of thermal physics, quantum theory, astrophysics, mathematics and more. Then, put your learning into practice in laboratory courses and state-of-the-art facilities.
Our students are exploring the subtle behavior of atoms and how they interact with molecules and solids.
The work that our students are doing can open doors to studying potentially revolutionary future technologies like artificial photosynthesis. As a physics student you'll benefit from a fantastic student to faculty ratio of 3:1. And your coursework will culminate in the completion of a capstone project under the guidance of a faculty advisor. You'll graduate ready for careers in physics, computer science and even finance and business. You'll also be prepared for competitive graduate programs.
