We congratulate our graduating class and wish them the best.




We encourage all our students to do research with our faculty and staff. Opportunities for great experiences are open to all our students in all our main research areas: atmospheric physics, condensed matter physics, gravitational physics, high energy physics and physical acoustics. Projects are also available in digital electronics as well as other areas. Students in the B.S. program are required to complete 2 credit hours of the physics research courses, Physics 463 and/or 464 and students in the B.A. program are encouraged to participate as well.  Many students enjoy research and participate throughout their academic career outside of these courses.  Students may talk to their academic advisors for help getting started or talk directly to the people in the research areas they are interested in.
