Students who major in physics learn to observe nature and understand concepts that are the key principles in many other science and engineering fields. Our graduates become problem solvers in a wide variety of industrial and technically sophisticated research and development settings. We also support a program that prepares secondary school teachers. Our distinctive areas include optics, astrophysics, and physics education, and we provide engaging opportunities for student-centered research.
