Help When You Need It
With small classes and an experienced and dedicated faculty, the physics program is noted for its close faculty-student relationships. Individual tutoring and mentoring are available beyond class and posted office hours.
Professors don’t wait until the first big test is over to reach out to any student whose understanding might be shaky; professors are also quick to identify students who excel and encourage them to tackle difficult material.
As one recent Mathematics-Physics graduate said, “I maintained wonderful working relationships with many professors, most notably in the Math, Physics, and Chemistry departments. There is nothing more satisfying than working together on a problem that seems near impossible, and managing to conquer it.”
