Physics | St. Lawrence University

About

Physics is the study of the fundamental principles that govern the entire natural world, from the atomic nucleus and elementary particles to the dimensions of the universe and the search for dark energy.  Our students investigate these principles in small classes with emphasis on lab experiences, and many opportunities for faculty-led research.  Physics majors leave St. Lawrence with the skills to pursue further study in a wide range of fields, such as engineering, astrophysics, and materials science.
