Physics at FHSU: Forward Thinking. World Ready.

If you’re like many physics students, you’re intensely curious and always looking for satisfying explanations about the world we live in. You’re good at mathematics and analysis, and you’d love to solve complex, real-world problems.

The Department of Physics is committed to helping you accomplish all your goals. What sets us apart from other programs?

  • Exceptional faculty will mentor you and help you get involved in the world of research early on in your college career.
  • We have the resources of a state university, but we’re small enough that you don’t have to ‘wait your turn’ to get involved in research (like you would at larger schools).
  • You’ll get hands-on learning experience in areas like robotics, laser bio-effects, atomic physics, material science, and more through our quality academic programs.
  • You can share your passion for physics with classmates through dynamic student organizations.
  • Unique internships and research opportunities with leading scientists around the country take you off campus and expose you to new cultures and ideas.
  • Small classes give you personal attention that ensures your success at engineering schools, in your career and throughout your life.
  • The skills you learn, combined with robust undergraduate hands-on research experience, will help you land a rewarding career or get into a quality graduate school program.

We invite you to explore this department site, catch up on the latest department news, and learn more about how we prepare you to find success in your future career or in graduate studies. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
