Why study physics?

A degree in physics provides valuable research and critical thinking skills which prepare students for a variety of careers. We offer physics majors and graduate students a high quality physics education with small classes in a research oriented environment. The programs are implemented by faculty who are excellent teachers and also maintain active, world-class research programs.

Our small class sizes, ground-breaking research opportunities, and one-on-one interaction with world class professors are just a few reasons to join our program.
