Course Objective:   

We require our students to attain minimum standards of physics knowledge in our introductory and upper level classes as demonstrated by solving problems that require an understanding and application of physics concepts. We also require our students to attain a sufficient knowledge of other sciences and mathematics that support our upper level courses and their application to our world.

We provide opportunities for original research experience, both experimental and theoretical, while modeling accepted research methods, laboratory skills, and ethics of the scientific community. This mainly occurs in our introductory and upper level classes, but we also require our students to participate in other investigatory activities, i.e., chemistry labs. We also have a research or internship requirement where our students participate in supervised research with physics faculty or have an integrated experience in an industry setting, supervised by physics faculty.

Students are required to be able to communicate technical information in formal and informal settings and complete courses in written and oral communication in their general education requirements. We build on those courses with our physics curriculum, cumulating with our research requirement. Communication skills are required throughout the process, from the literature search to the preliminary plan for investigation to the technical write-up of results.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Students will demonstrate proficiency in mathematics and the mathematical concepts needed for a proper understanding of physics.           

2. Students will demonstrate knowledge of classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, and thermal physics, and be able to apply this knowledge to analyze a variety of physical phenomena. 

3. Students will show that they have learned laboratory skills, enabling them to take measurements in a physics laboratory and analyze the measurements to draw valid conclusions.            

 4. Students will be capable of oral and written scientific communication, and will prove that they can think critically and work independently.
