WELCOME TO PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY
Thank you for visiting our site!
A Bachelor's degree in Applied Physics
A Master's degree in Engineering Physics
A Professional Science Master's in Engineering Physics: Instrumentation and Automation
We are here to teach and interest you in physics and astronomy. You will find that
our faculty are among the very best to interact with you and mentor you toward becoming
a scientist, and we have excellent new facilities in which to learn.
We have achieved a good balance in providing curricular opportunities for those who
wish to pursue advanced study in the sciences; for those who wish to enter the workforce
with an applied physics baccalaureate or master's degree; or for those who wish to
teach at the high school or community or technical college levels. We have been successful
in providing students with research experiences both during the academic year and the summer.
We have astronomy facilities which are second to none, and we have both teaching and
research observatories available to undergraduates.
During the last generation, we have graduated nearly 400 students at either the
bachelor or master levels. Of these, over 10% have earned doctoral degrees, and
half have earned master's degrees. Most work in science or technical fields,
but because physics is very broad in its scope, our graduates have branched into myriad
other fields. You will find our graduates working throughout our nation in government,
industrial, and university research, or teaching at the high school, community,
technical college, and university levels. Some are engineers or physicians, others
are stock brokers, writers, or even ministers.
