Our Mission

Both inside and outside the classroom, the University of St. Thomas Physics Department provides undergraduate students with a broad understanding and appreciation of physics, cultivates problem-solving skills involving analytical, experimental and computational techniques, and teaches how to effectively communicate technical ideas.  We strive to instill values that enable individuals to responsibly engage the world in which they live.
