​Physicists study and apply the laws of nature to answer fundamental questions about the evolution of the universe, the nature of light and matter, and the behavior of the natural world. The Physics Department at DePaul offers a full, rich curriculum in undergraduate and graduate education. Currently the home to more than 10 full-time and part-time faculty and approximately 80 majors and minors, courses are offered on the Lincoln Park Campus. In addition to its strong undergraduate program with concentrations in standard physics and computational physics, the department offers dual engineering degrees in conjunction with Illinois Institute of Technology, and a Master's degree in Applied Physics.
