Physics concerns itself with the deduction and establishment of the principles which underlie the observable phenomena of the physical universe. For students whose curiosity about physical phenomena guides them to a career in physics, the physics department offers courses to prepare them for graduate school, teaching, or industry. Other students interested in science will find that courses offered above the elementary level enrich erudition in their own concentrations.

Mathematics is the language of physics. Students must have a mathematical ability commensurate with the physics content of the course if they expect to master the material.
