Physics & Astronomy

The physics program at Beloit College could be the ideal major for a student interested in liberal arts and science. Physics and astronomy faculty use dynamic, interactive methods of teaching to challenge students, ensuring that they develop the strong problem-solving skills that are useful in a wide range of careers.

Practical work in the laboratory reinforces theoretical classroom work; many students participate in both formal and informal research projects, taking advantage of well-equipped labs and machine shops. The flexible major allows students to pursue individual interests. Current research interests of Beloit physics faculty encompass a wide variety of fields, including quantum chaos, planetary astronomy, laser spectroscopy, nuclear physics, and science education.
