Department of Physics & Astronomy

The Department of Physics and Astronomy prepares students for a variety of career paths, including graduate programs in physics, engineering and related fields; teacher certification; and research jobs in industry and at national laboratories.

Our physics majors learn principles of physics through a curriculum that builds strong quantitative and analytical skills, and our department offers many opportunities for undergraduate research. Our department was recognized by receiving the "Award for Improving Undergraduate Physics Education" from the American Physical Society (APS), and we were previously recognized as a "thriving department" by the National Task Force on Undergraduate Physics. Our department also ranks consistently high on AIP reports.
