Physics Department Mission
The mission of the Physics Program at Truman State University is to support the liberal arts and sciences mission of the University; to support students whose primary field of study overlaps with physics (for example, chemistry, biology, medicine, and mathematics); and to provide physics majors with the knowledge, skills, methods, and attitudes necessary to understand and engage professionally in inquiry into the nature and behavior of the physical world.
Physics Department Goals
Paul Friz, one of our recent physics graduates, was in the news due to his work with the Rosetta Project.
The next SPS meeting is this Thursday at 6:00 in MG 1000. As always, there will be pizza. If you have not paid your dues yet, bring $5 for this semester, or $10 if you want to pay for both.
