Undergraduate Programs

Our Programs

We offer degree programs in physics, astronomy, and meteorology, but there lots of details and options to choose from.

Our students find inspiration everywhere, from nano-rods to binary stars and from coastal sea breezes to neuron simulation. They become confident, innovative thinkers, well prepared for success, whether they seek immediate employment or further education in graduate or professional school.  A job, graduate school, or medical school?  We prepare you for these or other options. We provide you with extensive academic preparation, help and advice on getting in to graduate or professional school or applying for jobs.
