The scope of studies in physics--from nuclei to stars --is represented in the curriculum
of UD's Physics Department and in student research, as well as in the research of
individual faculty members. Students choosing to major or get a concentration in physics
take courses that prepare them for graduate studies, teaching, or industry. The low
student-to-faculty ratio means many opportunities to interact with professors in courses
and also in research. In 2013, the department added a dual degree in engineering
with the University of Texas at Arlington.
