The Physics and Astronomy department at Rowan University fosters a high-energy environment designed to challenge and stimulate every one of our students. A strong assortment of extracurricular activities, and laboratory experience not typically found at the undergraduate level, complement the student-centered classroom experience.
Our program—recently recognized by the American Institute of Physics—boasts a new science building with eight distinct research facilities, allowing for student-faculty collaborative research. These facilities include a magnetics lab, a physical properties lab, a thin film fabrication lab, a microscopy lab, an ultrafast spectroscopy lab, a laser cooling lab, a computational physics lab, and an astronomy and astrophysics research lab.
We also encourage students to participate in our active academic clubs. One of our most popular organizations, the Physics Club, has won Outstanding Chapter for its zone each of the last six years. As members of the club, students engage in research, present at national meetings, reach out to local high schools and host regional meetings.
