Welcome to the Department of Physics

The mission of the Oklahoma State University Physics Department is to advance the knowledge and understanding of Physics and the physical world through nationally and internationally prominent programs of graduate and undergraduate education, research and service.

The Physics program at OSU prepares students to be competitive in a wide variety of career opportunities, ranging from science and engineering to law and business. Opportunities exist for specialization in a wide range of topics, including practical study in state-of-the-art research laboratories. The programs aim is to prepare students for useful and worthwhile careers in their specialty of choice.

The major revolutions of the 20th century have been how we understand and control the physical universe. From Einstein's Relativity blossomed modern cosmology and satellite communications, and from Schroedinger's quantum mechanics came the worlds of computers, lasers and understanding DNA. In short, Physics, as the foundation of all science, has played the pivotal role in preparing us to embark on the 21st century.
