The physics department provides an education in the fundamental processes of the physical world with thorough study in both the classroom and laboratory.
In addition to the full spectrum of undergraduate coursework, we offer many opportunities to participate in research projects both on and off campus. Qualified students may begin research projects as early as their first year.
Occidental has been identified as an institution with a high rate of female physics majors by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL).
Oxy students and alumni facilitated the recent MWD Solar Cup Workshops. The workshops were attended by over 200 students representing high school solar cup teams throughout Southern California.
Pictured above are Oxy Alumni: Zamy Cardenas - Licea (2013) works at ADP, Adriana Borrayo (2013) getting Masters in Physics at Cal State Fullerton, Nicole Ing (2012) working on PhD in Material Science at UC Irvine and Kliah Soto Leytan (2012) working on MS in Physics at UC Irvine.
