Academic Overview

Physics prepares students to understand the laws of nature at their deepest levels. In the Department of Physics at Drexel University, students are given the opportunity to explore the span of universal phenomenon ranging from astrophysics and cosmology to biophysics, down to the subatomic level in particle physics. Along the way, our students acquire a solid understanding of physical principles, problem solving, mathematical and computational skills, as well as a broad experimental training. Research opportunities abound with Drexel's nationally ranked co-operative education program, as well as through participation in faculty research and world-wide collaborations.
