A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
Welcome to the Rutgers Department of Physics and Astronomy. Our research and education missions cover a vast extent. With our research we aim to advance knowledge about the physical world through measurement, observation, simulation, and theory. Our teaching mission is designed for the needs of non-science majors, engineering or medical students, majors planning on a career in research or indeed any student interested in how the world works! All members of the department are committed to making ours a welcoming, respectful community free from discrimination and harassment.
