  • 48 months
    Duration

Overview

Physics students at Le Moyne enjoy close working relationships with their classmates and with the physics faculty in a course of study that includes in-depth exploration of the physics of electromagnetic fields, analytical mechanics, electronics, computational techniques, relativity, and quantum mechanics. The Department enjoys newly renovated laboratories and classrooms, and its own machine shop. Laboratory courses introduce students to experimental technique and advanced laboratory electronics and equipment while investigating in-depth the physics of classical and quantum systems. Even non-lab courses frequently incorporate hands-on elements so that students develop a solid understanding of the connection between the physical world and the theory studied in classes. All physics B.S. students complete a semester-long capstone project of their own design that marries individual interests with the knowledge mastered in coursework.
