Physics & Astronomy

Our department offers a solid foundation in physics and astronomy as core disciplines within the liberal arts.

Students learn the disciplines’ technical, conceptual, historical and philosophical contexts. In addition, majors develop strong technical and mathematical skills.

We have a summer program for students in Robotics. Apply here.
