Small class sizes and focused attention on practical learning inside and outside the classroom makes studying physics at Concordia unique. You’ll gain personal attention from talented faculty who have experience in a variety of areas such as electromagnetic theory, astronomy, mechanics, atomic and nuclear physics, electronics and quantum physics.
Every physics major will complete a senior research project for graduation. You can work with one of the Concordia physics faculty on their cutting-edge research projects or participate in programs at other institutions and research facilities.
Many students decide to join Concordia’s chapter of the Society of Physics Students, a national organization dedicated to supporting undergraduate and graduate physics education. Our chapter was chartered in 1973 and is still going strong. Or, if representing your fellow students is more your style, our department selects two student representatives each year who serve as liaisons between the students and faculty. And don't forget about the Science Academy, an event hosted by our physics, biology and chemistry departments for local elementary students to build their interest in science.
Concordia has a chapter of the Sigma Pi Sigma Honor Society. This is a national honor society for students who demonstrate exceptional talent in physics. Each year outstanding physics students from Concordia are inducted into this prestigious society.
