The Department offers four-year bachelor and five-year doctorate degrees in Physics.
Undergraduate students acquire background in most basics areas of physics and have the opportunity to work in experimental, theoretical, and computational research groups. Students are prepared for further graduate studies, teaching physics in high schools, and working in research and development in industry.
Graduate students conduct fundamental and application-driven research in active areas of Condensed Matter, Bio-, and Atomic, Molecular, and Atomic (AMO) Physics.
