  • The NJCU Physics Department goal is to provide students with an excellent education that will prepare them for success in a competitive, and challenging world. Students are offered comprehensive educational programs linking theoretical concepts and hands-on activities to real-world applications in applied and technical fields.

    The Physics department's mission has four basic elements:


     

    1. Prepare students for a career in Physics and Engineering through the department’s B.S. and B.S. tracks, the pre-engineering program, the joint 3-2 engineering dual degree agreement with NJIT, and the associated program physics courses. Provide these students with the appropriate knowledge and experience in physics to successfully complete these programs when they continue their education at different institutions.


    2. Prepare students for a career in Science Education, through the Bachelor of Arts in Applied Physics/ Teacher Certification (Physical Science) program. Provide these students with the appropriate knowledge and experience in physics to successfully complete the State and NSTA requirements.
    3. Give students in the physical and biological sciences the necessary knowledge and experience in physics, appropriate for their concentration of study.


    4. Ensure all students taking the physics general studies and first year experience courses understand the basic philosophy of science and important physical principles. Provide these students with a basic understanding of these physical principles, and how they apply to general everyday experiences.
