Faculty research ranging from subatomic particle physics to the interactions of many bodies as part of condensed matter and material science, that uses the tools of physics applied to biological systems, and studies the behavior of many charged particles as part of accelerator physics.

A comprehensive graduate program immerses students in this exciting research as part of their master's or Ph.D. degree, and includes a master's degree program in Medical Physics as well as an APS-sponsored M.S.-to-Ph.D. bridge program.

Intriguing undergraduate courses for students at all levels.  Our talented undergraduate Physics majors, including those in our Applied Physics stream, are trained to succeed in any graduate program in the country, join industry, or pursue any career requiring problem-solving and technical skills.
