Department of Physics

Welcome to the Physics Department

Physics majors have: 

  • A choice of different learning tracks, each featuring high-quality instruction 
  • The opportunity to work with and get to know dedicated faculty

Faculty do research on all 4 states of matter as well as on physics education. 

Our general emphasis is on applied physics means our graduates often can get engineering jobs as well as jobs in pure science. 

Our majors are succeeding - we are among the top 20 departments nationally in graduating Hispanic/Latino students with bachlor's degrees in physics.
