The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers a B.S. in Physics, with an optional Astronomy concentration. The department also offers a B.A. in Physics with an optional Astronomy concentration and minors in both Physics and Astronomy. The B.A. in Physics can also be awarded as part of Stonehill’s Engineering 3+2 Program with the University of Notre Dame.
Another important mission of the Department of Physics and Astronomy is the dissemination of science to students who major in other disciplines. We currently offer six courses for the Cornerstone Program, covering topics that range from the history of physics and astronomy, to the foundations of quantum physics and relativity, to the search for planets around other stars and for life in the cosmos.
