Welcome to Physics and Astronomy

You have discovered the best place to find information about our program, faculty, undergraduate research opportunities in Physics and Astronomy, Physics Club activities, and special announcements.

We offer both a Bachelor or Arts and Bachelor of Science degree in Physics.  In addition, we also offer a minor in Physics and a minor in Astronomy.  If you are interested in graduate programs, our faculty also participates in the Applied Science PhD and MS programs.

Our faculty members have been very successful in obtaining external grants to fund the state-of-the-art laboratories, research programs, and computer facilities.  Research opportunities, for both undergraduate and graduate students, exist in Astrophysics and Materials Science.
