The Physics and Physics Teaching programs provide you with the knowledge, skills and experience you will need to compete for positions in industry or to gain acceptance to a graduate program. Our curriculum exposes you to topics ranging from Newton’s laws of motion to the foundations of quantum mechanics, and ends by refining these topics conceptually and mathematically.


  • Small student-to-faculty ratio
  • Plenty of hands-on experience in course labs to explore experimental, computational, and theoretical endeavors
  • Computational and software experience built into the curriculum


Graduates in our physics program have gone on to teach physics in high school, continue their study of physics in graduate school, and pursue physics-related careers such as programming.
