Physics is the search for the fundamental physical laws of nature. In particular, physics is the study of forces and motion of physical entities, seeking to find basic relations that synthesize these phenomena. The goal is to discover ways to control and predict natural occurrences and to understand and explain the physical universe. To achieve this goal involves observation and experimentation from which physical and mathematical mod- els are developed that suggest concepts and theories. Although modern science limits itself to a naturalistic view of reality and to experimental ways of obtaining knowledge, this department takes the view that physical phenomena are consistent with the concept of an intelligent Designer and divine Creator.
Degrees offered include a four-year B.S. in Physics and a four- year B.S. in Biophysics. The department also offers an A.S. in Engineering, which meets the first two years of requirements for standard baccalaureate-level engineering degrees.
