Why PhysicsPhysics is the study of matter and energy, from the smallest scale, as in the study of elementary particles, to the largest, as in the study of the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies.
In this sense, physics is the science that underlies all other sciences. Developments in basic physics drive technology, and technology helps physicists discover nature's secrets.
What is the Physics department like?
Undergraduates will find that they have the unique opportunity to work closely with faculty as they complete their degree. Students majoring in physics consolidate their undergraduate studies by putting what they have learned to use in a capstone experience in one of the department's research laboratories. Each student joins a member of the faculty in a project that provides experience in a professional setting.
