Department of Physics
The Department comprises twelve full-time faculty members, a laboratory technician, and an administrative assistant. We are research-oriented with active efforts in theoretical and computational condensed matter physics (soft matter, complex fluids, and biophysics), optics (laser applications), physics education research, and experimental polymer physics.
We offer M.S. and Ph.D. graduate programs and an undergraduate major in Physics, along with an option in Optical Science and Engineering. See the sidebars to learn more about our research areas, degree programs, and course offerings.
