Physics & Astronomy
Physics and astronomy have always been the bedrock of our understanding of the universe, our place in it and the natural laws and patterns that govern our lives and our surroundings.
KU's Department of Physics and Astronomy offers three undergraduate programs: Physics (B.S., B.A.), Astronomy (B.S., B.A.) and Engineering Physics (B.S.).
As a Physics major, you'll gain a foundation for virtually all fields of the natural sciences and engineering. As an Astronomy major, you'll learn the science of the physical study of stars and stellar systems in the observable universe. Studying Engineering Physics will give you an interdisciplinary education; you'll learn from our finest faculty from both the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and the School of Engineering.
