About

Our five permanent faculty members are dedicated teachers and provide opportunities to learn about Physics and Astronomy to our majors at Macalester College and other interested students at all levels.

Overview

The major in Physics at Macalester College provides a rigorous study of many topics in the field of physics that are fundamental for every scientific and technological discipline. The physics major is particularly appropriate for students wishing to pursue graduate study in physics, astronomy, engineering, medicine and related areas, as well as for those seeking positions in technology-oriented business and industry. 

For example, a double major in physics and computer science would be excellent preparation for graduate study in computer engineering.
