Physics at Davidson

The Physics Department offers a full range of courses toward a major in physics, and excellent opportunities to participate in research efforts with faculty, an opportunity that is typically only available in a setting the size of Davidson.

Because physics is a fundamental natural science—linking science, mathematics, and philosophy—a major in physics provides a natural cornerstone for a well-rounded liberal arts education. 

From the first X-ray detection in the U.S. and the first medical use of X-rays (1896) and the creation of Sigma Pi Sigma (1921), the Physics Honor Society, to today's cutting-edge research and pedagogy, Physics at Davidson has always been exciting and challenging.
