The Department consists of eight faculty members, all of whom are actively engaged in research involving both undergraduate and graduate students. Research areas include astronomy and astrophysics, molecular spectroscopy, solid-state physics, and theoretical physics. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to further their professional development by attending frequent seminars given by visiting physicists on current advances in physics and astronomy, by presenting papers at national and international meetings, and by publishing their research results in the leading journals in their field. The department offers an NSF sponsored REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program and runs the TCU Research Apprentices Program (RAP), which allows high school students to participate in journal worthy research projects.
Degrees offered: B.A., B.S., M.S., and Ph.D.
