Course Information

The Mercyhurst University Department of Physics seeks to provide a high-quality physics education that prepares students to be the scientists of the future, confident in their abilities and their understanding of physics. Because we believe that simple factual knowledge is not sufficient, the department seeks to instill strong analytical and critical thinking skills in our students. To accomplish this goal, our department is centered on the following tenets:

  • A student-centered approach

  • A focus on scientific inquiry

  • A commitment to promoting diversity

  • A dedication to standards of excellence

  • A belief in developing the whole person

Along with our major courses, we also strive to provide students with a liberal arts background that contributes to a well-rounded academic. Students in any of our courses should acquire the foundational knowledge necessary to be successful in their field and as thoughtful citizens. Our graduates should have the expertise and competence in physics to be prepared for that study in the physical science and or for employment.
