Physics & Astronomy

Physics & Astronomy Department

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 offer many opportunities for undergraduate research. Our department was recognized as a "thriving department" by the National Task Force on Undergraduate Physics and we consistently rank high on AIP reports (PDF).
