Department of Physics and Astronomy

The University of Georgia Department of Physics and Astronomy offers undergraduate degrees in Astrophysics and Physics. It also offers comprehensive graduate degrees at both the Masters and Doctorate levels.

Undergraduate Degrees
Students in the BS in Astrophysics degree program will learn the fundamental study of physics with observational astronomy and astrophysics. Emphasis is placed on applying theory to current astronomical and astrophysical problems and on individual research. Students in the BS in Physics degree program will learn the foundational theories of classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and quantum mechanics.

Graduate Degrees
The graduate program degrees have two main goals: Achieving a broad background in Physics through coursework and seminars, and developing independent research skills through the completion of an original thesis project.

QSEP

Advancing quantum technologies at the University of Georgia.

University of Georgia Quantum Science and Engineering Program

 The QSEP’s unique combination of capabilities includes novel experimental and simulational techniques in nano and quantum materials, optics and plasmonics, new types of scanning probe microscopies, innovative expertise in materials synthesis and crystal growth, state-of-the-art imaging and spectroscopy characterization methods, and contemporary theoretical and computational methods. Combined with novel high-resolution imaging and spectroscopy capabilities, the Center for Simulational Physics (CSP) at UGA opens a unique opportunity to exploit the power of state-of-the-art Monte Carlo and other simulational tools for application in QSEP. In addition, various expertise/visitors/research skills as well as rich collection of computational tools of the CSP will bring an invaluable addition to the proposed program.
