The Department of Physics at St. John's University offers three Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in Physics, Mathematical Physics, and Physical Science, as well as a minor in Physics. We also offer combined B.S./M.B.A. programs that allow you to complete both degrees within five years.
Our courses cover a wide range of topics including electricity and magnetism, quantum theory, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics.
The St. John's chapters of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma, the National Physics Honor Society, sponsor events like “Arduino Mondays” and “Fun Lab Fridays” that engage the community in physics-related activities.
Our faculty members are dedicated to your education in and beyond the classroom. All have active research programs, which are supported by various grants and fellowships.
