Department of Physics
Why Study Physics at Baylor?
The vision of the physics department is to develop an admiration of God’s creation by discovering and understanding the physical laws that govern the universe...
Graduate and undergraduate students in physics at Baylor University experience the benefits of a major American university, large enough to support a superior academic program while still allowing opportunities only available within a close-knit community of scholars. With excellent facilities housed in the Baylor Science Building, the department faculty and staff members are dedicated to help our students for their successes in our program and for their future.
