Course Description

Physics is a study of matter and its interaction at the fundamental level. Physicists seek to measure, understand, model, and control the processes in the physical world around us. Physicists measure and model phenomena in the physical world, and applied physicists connect fundamental physical principles to real-world problem-solving. To this end, physicists use a variety of descriptive and quantitative techniques to represent their knowledge. Our students work in a community where collaboration, teaching, and communication of results are essential.

Minor - Physics is a study of the fundamental macroscopic and microscopic properties of nature, from the building blocks of matter to the origin, extent, and future of the universe itself. Physicists seek to measure, understand, model, and control the processes in the physical world around us.
