The NJCU Physics Department offers a comprehensive education that links theoretical concepts and hands-on activities to real-world applications. We are preparing the next generation of innovators for careers in physics, engineering or science education, as well as for graduate study in the discipline.
We offer a variety of degree programs to fit your career plans. Our goal is to ensure you have the physical and life sciences experience appropriate for your concentration. A minor in physics is an excellent complement to other science degree programs, while our pre-engineering program is perfect for students looking to transfer to an engineering college for a Bachelor of Science in Engineering.
The Physics Department full-time and adjunct faculty members are focused on student success. They offer a supportive learning environment in which your success is a priority. We offer coursework on a range of topics, from astronomy to thermodynamics, from instrumentation to microprocessors.
Physics Department students also have opportunities to connect with other physics students through department activities. There are also opportunities throughout the year for students to work with faculty on research projects, which the student can then present at a conference or symposium.
The Physics department's mission has four basic elements:
