As a student in Duquesne University's Physics department, you won't just learn about reasearch--you'll do the research, working alongside our teacher-scholars and experiencing the thrill of learning about nature first-hand.

Physics faculty and students pursue a vigorous research program in experimental condensed matter, experimental atomic physics and experimental nuclear physics--all areas open to undergraduate involvement.

The Department of Physics houses undergraduate programs leading to bachelor degrees in the physics major, and serves the needs for physics content in all science programs. Additionally, the Department offers a selection of courses for non-science majors carefully designed to meet University Core science requirements, in a range of topics from the traditional to the fun-filled and even the exotic.
