The Physics Program enhances students’ capacity for analysis, synthesis, and inductive and deductive reasoning. Physics students learn to plan and conduct scientific experiments and to communicate the concepts of physics in oral, written, and mathematical form.

Our physics curriculum provides study in all subfields central to the undergraduate degree: mechanics, electricity and magnetism, thermal physics, optics, modern and quantum physics, digital electronics and computer interfacing, and experimental physics. In addition, many majors participate in collaborative research with a faculty member.
