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).
