About the Department

Course offerings in the Department of Physics reflect the needs of three categories of students: (1) those majoring in physics; (2) those majoring in another science who need a basic introduction to physics and the analytical skills it provides; and (3) those majoring in areas outside the sciences, who seek to explore the concepts of physics with a minimum of mathematics.

Lab 1

Michelson Interferometer Lab

Laboratory work is emphasized at all levels of our program, from first-year courses through senior thesis work.

The Department of Physics also conducts weekly "tea times" during the semester so students, faculty and staff can meet in an informal setting.
