Physics Department

The St. Olaf Physics Department, in the Faculty of Natural Science and Mathematics (FNSM), offers a strong major with excellent undergraduate research opportunities. Our program has recently grown to over 20 majors per year. One of our introductory sequences is tailored specifically for the interests of students majoring in the life sciences and chemistry, while another intro sequence is geared for students considering a physics major. We also offer an array of courses to introduce aspects of physics and astronomy to general audiences. Please check out the links at the left side of this page to find out more about us.
