The Department of Physics and Astronomy at West Virginia University is dedicated to the study of the physical world and the processes that govern it. Our faculty train students in a wide-range of fundamental areas of classical and modern physics through a structured program of courses, individual and group research activities, department activities and advanced electives.
About Our Degree Programs
We also offer Masters of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Both degree programs provide a solid foundation in the fundamentals as well as a diverse range of specializations for research. In addition to working with Physics faculty in these research areas, graduate students have worked with faculty in a variety of other departments at WVU.
