What We Do
The Department of Physics at the Utica University has developed a strong, positive teaching and research environment that is welcoming to all physics students. We are also committed to serving the community with outreach programs for schools and the general public.
The Physics Department at Utica University encompasses several programs:
Utica University's physics major offers a robust introduction to the science of the physical world, from the basic structure of atoms and matter to the complex interactions of galaxies. Our program provides students with an opportunity to explore the fundamental nature of the physical universe. With an accomplished faculty and an individualized learning environment, the Utica University physics program is an excellent choice for students considering careers in research, teaching, engineering, and jobs in industry that demand a strong foundation in physical science.
We also offer research opportunities in the areas of Space Physics and Physics Education.
FOLLOW THE PHYSICS DEPARTMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
The mission of the Physics Department is to serve the entire Utica University community. With a comprehensive and rigorous curriculum that offers several degree options, along with special transfer study opportunities, the Physics program prepares physics majors and pre-engineering students for fulfilling career opportunities. The Physics program prepares students in other majors, ranging from chemistry, biology, mathematics, computer science to health sciences, with the background in physics they need to be successful in their fields. The Physics Department is committed to providing provocative core courses that fulfill the general science requirements for non-science students.
The Physics Department at Utica University offers a variety of outreach activities to libraries and schools in the Greater Utica area. We also contribute to the Young Scholars Liberty Partnership Program (YSLPP) at Utica University.
Students have the opportunity to conduct research with faculty on a variety of topics such as solar-terrestrial interactions, space weather, and physics education. Students have received grants and fellowships to support their research. Students are encouraged to publish their research in national and international journals and attend conferences.
