Welcome to our new colleague: Dr. Michael Durst will be joining the physics department faculty during the summer of 2014.
Physics majors should acquire familiarity with fundamental theories and methodologies in physics. Both theory and experiment are essential in physics.
Students' understanding of physics should be characterized both by depth and breadth.
Students should be able to communicate their knowledge of physics both in written and oral presentations; they should be adept at presenting ideas conceptually and in specific detail, as demonstrated, for example, through solutions to homework problems.
Students should be able to easily recognize applications of physics, learned in the classroom or lab, and in every-day life.
In approaching a problem, students should be able to find, understand, and integrate previous knowledge, and also recognize what to ignore.
Students should develop an attitude of empirical enquiry and critical thinking, open-mindedness, and empiricism.
