Students majoring in physics leading to 7-12 certification in physics secondary education take 116 credit hours of major coursework and are exposed to real-life teaching situations during field experiences.
Physics faculty and students at Grove City College use cutting-edge equipment inside and outside of the classroom and lab to conduct research and publish their findings in leading science journals.
Our department has active research programs in optics, nanotechnology, biophysics, astronomy and physics education.
Upon graduation, students are prepared for graduate work in physics, teaching at the secondary level, medical, dental, business or law school, technical sales and more.
A division of the Society of Physics Students (SPS), the purpose of the club is to encourage a broader knowledge of physics and an understanding of the field of physics.
Students gain a foundational knowledge of the process of scientific investigation, including modern computational and laboratory methods.
