The Department of Physics at Colorado State University is home to 22 faculty members who maintain research programs in Atomic and Molecular Optics Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, High-Energy Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics, and Theoretical Physics. The CSU Physics Department’s strength is the friendly and individualized relationship between students and faculty.
Graduate students in the department will take part in research programs and with teaching in the undergraduate laboratories. As part of their research, students will take significant and leading roles in some of the most exciting areas of physics. Incoming students may enter the program interested in several fields and explore the different experimental and theoretical possibilities within the department before deciding their own research path.
