Physics at MSU Denver
Physicists study everything from the stars in the sky to the atomic particles in the atmosphere. Although it may seem complicated, physics – alongside its complementary math and philosophy – is the foundation of all sciences. Physicists who apply their expertise with biology, chemistry or astronomy can help cure disease, fight climate change and understand the evolution of our universe. Physicists develop new technology and help improve obsolete technology. Studying nature and how it works is crucial to improving humanity. Here in the department of Physics at MSU Denver, you will develop the tools to do just that as a part of your Physics degree.
