Minds Moving the Cosmos
Physics is the fundamental, exact science that teaches us about the nature of space, time, energy and matter: the make-up of the entire universe, from its smallest building blocks to the most vast expanses of the cosmos. Figuring out the fundamental laws of nature requires students to solve problems no one has ever solved before. Whether by means of theoretical or experimental methods, these challenges are the basis of outstanding achievement and distinction for our students. Combine these opportunities at the forefront of our twin fields of particle physics and astrophysics with small class sizes, close professional interactions between students and our award-winning and internationally recognized faculty, and SMU's massive investment in cutting-edge computation, and you have the recipe for something amazing.
