Help Support WWU Physics/Astronomy
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Western Washington University offers a B.S. degree in physics and a B.A.Ed. degree in physics/mathematics education. The physics B.S. is based on a core curriculum that covers the five fundamental theories of physics: mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, relativity, and quantum mechanics. Laboratory work forms an important part of many of the core courses, including sophisticated upper-division laboratories. Students graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in physics are well prepared for graduate school in a variety of fields including physics, astronomy, engineering, and materials science.
Your gift to Physics and Astronomy will fund student-faculty research, travel to conferences, career networking opportunities and most importantly, scholarships, especially for women and under-represented students.
