The Department of Physics offers a major and a minor program of study in physics. Physicists seek a description of nature in terms of its most fundamental entities. They study systems ranging in size and complexity from quarks to the universe itself.
The offerings of the department are planned to meet the following needs:
(1) general cultural knowledge,
(2) specific group requirements for majors in other departments, (3) basic subject matter for those preparing to enter various branches of engineering or other technical schools, and
(4) a major in physics, for those intending to enter industry or to continue in graduate school.
