Physicists are constantly pushing the boundaries of science and technology to understand the universe around us. This drive for innovation has a real-world impact in fields well beyond physics, including medicine, finance, engineering and consumer technologies. The goal of the Clarkson Department of Physics is to educate a new generation of problem solvers to tackle the next big problems in science and industry.
Our department combines the best features of a small liberal arts college and a major research university. The department's program presents unrivaled opportunities for education and research in a wide range of topics, from subatomic particles to supernova.
