Our physics community involves a creative and diverse group of students and faculty in a collaborative environment of learning, teaching, and research. Building on the fundamental processes of the physical world, learned in classroom and laboratory settings, students apply their skills to extend current knowledge by investigating new phenomena, and they explain their new understanding in oral presentations and written documents.
Physics majors will be conversant with the major ideas and techniques of classical and modern physics.
Physics majors will become proficient in mathematics, laboratory, and computer skills and problem solving.
Physics majors will communicate their knowledge in written reports and oral and poster presentations.
Physics majors will contribute to the knowledge base of physics through research.
Physics graduates will be able to begin physics-related careers in teaching, industry, or research.
