About the Department
The Physics Department coordinates programs in Physics and the Physics part of the 3:2 Cooperative Engineering Agreement with Virginia Tech. We are committed to quality undergraduate education, with emphasis on hands-on education.

Our students have opportunities to interact closely with faculty in their courses as well as on various independent study and research projects. Ongoing research projects include work in surface physics (scanning tunneling microscopy), observational astronomy, and geophysics.

The three concentrations in the Physics Major allow our students flexibility in their career choices. Read more about the Physics Concentration and the the Physics Education concentration here.
