The Department of Physics has but one single mission: provide the highest quality undergraduate education in physics. We undertake the rigorous training of students in our discipline and assist in building a strong scientific foundation for students in other degree programs. The discipline we share with our students has value not only for the technical skills it cultivates, but for its contribution to human culture by encouraging critical thinking, curiosity and an open mind.
