Welcome to Physics!
The Physics Department at SMCM is dedicated to creating an environment for our students to learn and grow both as physicists and individuals. We actively pursue innovative teaching methods to improve student understanding and retention. Students are encouraged to pursue research alongside the physics faculty. Come visit us!
The Physics Department gratefully acknowledges an investment of $1,000,000 from the Patuxent Partnership. This investment will support the addition of a curriculum in applied physics. Students will now have a broader array of study options from which to choose in order to best meet their interests in physics. Read more about the investment and our expanded program here. We are reviewing applications for a new tenure-track faculty position in applied physics. Details of the search are here.
The SMCM STEM Navigators program offers scholarships of $5,000 to $10,000 to students who major in science or math and who demonstrate financial need. This program is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
