Department Chair: Rebecca Koopmann

Students learn about the wide spectrum of modern physics, with courses in relativity, string theory, black holes, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics and other physical states and relationships that make us see the universe in very different ways. At Union, physics and astronomy classes are small and personal, instruction is characterized by individual attention, labs are taught by the regular faculty rather than by graduate students, and all students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research with faculty.
