The principles of physics underlie every physical aspect of our world, from the smallest subatomic particle to the largest galaxy in outer space. The work of the physicist is to uncover these fundamental principles upon which other scientific work can be based. Each day physicists make significant contributions in many areas of science, including meteorology, medicine, oceanography and space exploration.
Far from being an isolated science, physics is very much a part of the world in which we live. Discoveries in physics have affected history, political science, philosophy and other disciplines - even the arts.
Augsburg College offers one of the strongest undergraduate physics programs available in a private liberal arts school setting. At Augsburg, physics students have rigorous and up-to-date preparation in physics, ready access to professors, and the opportunity to work with faculty or local industry on research projects. There is also the opportunity to grow in other ways through the college's strong liberal arts programs and extracurricular activities such as the fine arts and athletics.
