Department of Physics
"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.
Underpinning all natural phenomena and man-made technologies, physics is the most sought after career skill: a Physics Degree opens you up to a huge array of job opportunities across all technical disciplines. Learn more about the wide spectrum of career opportunities with a degree in physics.
