UCA provides a balanced program for students. We are large enough to provide a variety of opportunities. You can work with faculty in physical acoustics, bio-physics, observational astronomy, astro-physics, physics education, computational physics, or general relativity. UCA is still small enough that the faculty get to know the students.
As a sample of what you can accomplish here at UCA, below are a few of the student poster titles from the March 2014 CNSM Poster Symposium.
Resonance Lab for High School Students
Synchronization Limits of Chaotic Circuits
Determining Black Hole Mass of Active Galactic Nuclei Using FWHM of the Hβ Emission Line and Luminosity Relations
Acoustic Properties of NASA Flight-Approved Materials and other Testable Samples
The focus of the faculty in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UCA is educating undergraduate physics majors. Your success is our main goal.
Here is another great example of what you can do with a physics degree from UCA.
Dr. David James graduated with a BS in Physics from UCA in 2002. He now works as a research scientist at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics in Boulder, Colorado. While a graduate student, David worked on the Student Dust Collector one of the experiments that was active on the New Horizons mission to Pluto. Enjoy a short video that he helped put together describing space dust and how to study it.
