Physics is the study of the principles of the physical universe and the experiments that demonstrate those principles. Susquehanna’s Department of Physics offers courses in the classical areas of mechanics, electricity and magnetism, optics, and electronics, with courses in quantum areas offered as interest warrants.
Students engage in two major research concentrations—particle particle physics and planetary astronomy. Opportunities include research projects linked to NASA, CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), and the Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid.
