Undergraduate Study

Interested in learning how nature works at a level that is often deeper and more satisfying than you can find in other areas of science or in engineering? If so, explore physics — a discipline that's so much more than the study of matter and energy.

Our department invites you to learn more about our offerings, review our research and scientific discoveries, and hopefully collaborate with us during your academic career. We look forward to meeting you.
