Physics Department

Physics attempts to give a description of the natural world, from quarks to quasars, based upon observation and expressed mathematically. The physics department at W&J has an active, accessible faculty, and a tradition of students who succeed in graduate study, business, and industry. Students of the department benefit from one-on-one interaction, opportunities for research, and a sense of community. The department's offerings include a major and minor in physics, a major in biological physics, and courses in the areas of physics, earth and space science, information technology, and environmental studies.
