Physics is the study of nature at its deepest level—matter and its interactions. Introductory courses provide students a foundation in classical and modern physics, and senior level courses offer the physics minor an advanced insight into the world of physics. The department emphasizes a relaxed atmosphere of free exchange between students and professors.
Because one of our most important goals is to make physics fun for everyone, the department annually sponsors an Egg Drop Contest and a Physics and Chemistry Circus.
The Physics Department works with the Math Department to oversee Centenary's 3/2 Engineering program, an innovative program that offers students the opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree from Centenary in conjunction with a Bachelor of Science from one of our ABET accredited partnered institution.
