Overview

The program encompasses a complete curriculum comprised of classical and quantum physics ranging from the properties of particles to the dynamics of the universe.   All disciplines in science and engineering turn to physics to address the foundation of their fields. 

Hallmarks of a Norwich education include experiential learning and leadership development.  The Department of Physics therefore not only accentuates laboratory work but also insists upon peer collaboration throughout the curriculum. Physics majors, having the advantage of a 3-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, develop close working relationships with their faculty mentors culminating in original research conducted in a faculty laboratory.  Physics majors regularly present the results of their research at regional and national conferences.  Currently, the research interests of the faculty include particle physics, material science, astrophysics and geophysical fluid dynamics.
