Every other Jewish mother in Brooklyn would ask her child, 'So? Did you learn anything today?' But not my mother. 'Izzy,' she would say, 'did you ask a good question today?' Asking good questions made me become a scientist.

Dear Parents of Prospective Students,

 

The Department of Physics at Miami University has a long tradition of exceptional status in the educational arena.  Having been home to great educators like George Arfken, author of the world famous textbook Mathematical Methods for Physicists, Miami Physics takes pride in preparing students to achieve their career goals.


Opportunities for undergraduate research are open to all majors in physics and related disciplines.  Fields range from the nanoscale to the universe, with resulting career options being just as varied.  The Faculty Research pages will provide more information.

 

The best testament to our department comes from our alumni.  Be sure to check out the Alumni link to read about their experiences at Miami Physics and the diversity of careers they enjoy.  For a view of Liberal Education from one alumnus, read "Why am I taking this stuff?"
