Physics Program

The major in physics leads to a Bachelor of Science (BS). In addition, supporting courses and general education courses in physics and astronomy are available for students with a wide spectrum of interests, backgrounds and needs. Students can choose a special emphasis in one of these areas: physics, engineering, chemical or biophysics, secondary education, physics/math double major.

As a physics major at CSU-Pueblo you will have close contact with experienced faculty in small classes and social events. All physics faculty give individual attention when you need it throughout your academic career.

Both labs are fully equipped with computers at each lab station, computer-assisted data acquisition and analysis, experiments on high temperature superconductivity, x-rays, and more. The Physics Program owns and operates a research grade observatory five miles from campus.  CSU-Pueblo’s program is particularly rich in hands-on experiences—with twice the typical number of advanced physics lab found in most programs!

Mastering physics is challenging. As a student of physics you will learn how to observe carefully, keep accurate records, think clearly and logically, solve problems, and work both on your own and in groups. Such useful skills have life-long value and open doors to many fine career opportunities in many different fields. 

Why should you study physics?

Right now is a great time for physics!--So many wild new adventures calling; so many mysteries to unravel, yet so many new observations and data sources to tap into on the journey to know and understand!  The time is ripe again for exploring and discovering more of the universe with physics!

Physics is the foundation of all science and technology. The laws of physics have taken mankind to the moon and have been used to help develop semiconductors, superconductivity, lasers and holograms, fiber optic communications and much more. Physics has enabled scientists to understand their physical world from the tiniest quarks and electrons to the vastness of the cosmos. Physics has been applied to help us contemplate the origins of the universe as well as the development of products that meet human needs.
