About the Department

The primary mission of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is to provide an outstanding education for our students. Our curriculum serves undergraduate liberal arts students who seek, by the study of Physics, to acquire critical thinking skills and develop the understanding and problem-solving abilities which are increasingly needed in our technological society.

Undergraduate science majors pursue courses of study such as pre-medicine and computer science, in which a sound foundation in physics is essential to further advancement.

We prepare our undergraduate physics majors for graduate and professional schools or a variety of careers, including teaching and industrial research and development.
