  • Kassia Schraufnagel

    “The advice I would give to other physics majors is to challenge yourself and to use every opportunity to your advantage.”

  • Héctor Rauda

    “Carthage faculty are impressive. Developing a good relationship with faculty members has opened my eyes to new opportunities, such as internships and research programs.”

  • Clayton Markech ?24

    “I chose Carthage because I had the opportunity to get large-school experiences at a small school where the professors can get to know me personally.”

  • Logan Dales

    “The physics program here is amazing, with connections across the country that I’d hope would make for a great education and possibly help me find a job post-graduation.”

  • Julia Radtke?s Student 教授ile Image

    “I liked the small class size and science programs offered at Carthage. When I was touring the school, I got to sit in on a physics class, and I liked it.”

  • Skylar Farr

    “You become part of a community, and the professors are always willing to help if you reach out.”

物理专业的机会

与NASA一起进行研究

物理 major students on a zero-g flight. The space sciences program at Carthage is a nationally recognized undergraduate program that provides students with hands-on opportunities in 技术 development and atmospheric sciences through partnerships with NASA and academic researchers worldwide. Carthage students and faculty regularly conduct research aboard NASA’s zero-gravity aircraft as part of ongoing experiments and 技术 development for space hardware. Students also participate in NASA’s RockSat and CubeSat programs, with students designing and building experiments to be flown on NASA spacecraft. This work makes Carthage an excellent choice for students interested in aeronautical and space sciences. Many 物理 Department alumni are now pursuing advanced degrees in aeronautical 工程 or working in the industry.

使用顶级设施

Students are involved in forefront research activities with faculty, including atmospheric physics research, 引力波研究, and work on propulsion systems at the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida and the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The department’s dynamic faculty is actively involved in many different research areas. For example, physics students working with Jean Quashnock教授 are studying gravitational waves emitted by merging black holes, using data collected by the LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA scientific collaboration. They are modeling the merger events and measuring key properties of these black holes — including their mass and spin — seeking to test our current scientific understanding of these fascinating objects.


活跃的物理社区

bv伟德ios下载的 物理学生学会 (SPS) chapter is active and award-winning. The chapter has earned distinction as a national Outstanding Chapter for several consecutive years. SPS is a student-led organization that runs education outreach to local schools. Strong scholars may be elected to the physics honor society Sigma Pi Sigma.

Student Organizations for physics students

RECOGNIZED FOR EXCELLENCE IN STEM CAREERS

Carthage is among the best in the country, according to the American Institute of 物理 (AIP), when preparing undergraduate physics students for careers in the fields of science, 技术, 工程, 和数学. The AIP selected the Carthage 物理 Department for its new study on effective undergraduate physics programs. 根据AIP的说法, Carthage was selected because of its strong record in preparing students with bachelor’s degrees in physics and immediately placing them into STEM careers.
