Physics

The objective of physics is to discover the basic laws that govern the universe and to understand how these laws lead to the wide variety of phenomena in the world around us. A truly multidisciplinary field, physics encompasses concepts that are naturally applied to outstanding problems in geology, biology, chemistry, and other disciplines. The Department of Physics offers a number of degree programs for both graduate and undergraduate students. Our faculty and students are engaged in research that includes high-energy particle physics; the study of atoms, molecules and nuclei; the physics of biological systems and astrophysical investigations that probe the vastness of space and time; the study of the collective properties of solids, liquids, and biological systems; and physics education and teacher preparation.
