Welcome to the Department of Physics & Astronomy!

Physics is the most fundamental of all the scientific disciplines. Ranging from the applied to the abstract, from the infinitesimal to the infinite, and from quarks to the cosmos, the study of physics seeks to explain all the complicated phenomena in the natural world by providing a description of these phenomena in terms of a few basic principles and laws.

Over the years, our more than 500 physics graduates from this department are now working as physicists, astronomers, geophysicists, professors, pilots, teachers, and a great many engineers and computer professionals. As the nation moves to meet the technological challenges of our time, the demand for well-educated individuals with an undergraduate education in physics continues to grow.
