"Nature has a great simplicity and therefore a great beauty." — Richard Feynman
Physics is the ultimate natural science, whose principles govern the universe. Everything we do, see, and feel is governed by the laws of physics.
In the Department of Physics at UL Lafayette, we are studying novel energy-harvesting and magnetic materials, atmospheric and underwater acoustics, physical and computational geodynamics, sensor development, radioactive dating, and more. With our undergraduate and graduate programs, you can get involved with our world-class and interdisciplinary research while studying the foundations and latest developments in physics.
Also, physics underlies all natural phenomena and man-made technologies. That makes it the most versatile science when it comes to careers: your degree in physics opens you up to a huge array of job opportunities across all technical disciplines. Learn more about career opportunities with a degree in physics.
