The department offers a program of coursework and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics. Approximately 40 graduate students are enrolled in the Physics department, supported by research and teaching assistantships and fellowships.
Our faculty members are currently conducting research and directing doctoral candidates in the major research areas of atomic, biological, condensed matter, materials, high-energy, nuclear, laser and molecular physics.
Physicists study the basic principles and laws that govern the natural world. We engage in scientific and technological challenges, perform cutting-edge research, and discover new properties and conditions of space, time, energy, force and matter!
