Don't Memorize, Understand Why!

Students in Physics & Astronomy don't memorize facts or equations; they learn how to ask questions an how to answer these questions through problem solving. Physics & Astronomy is about formulating questions that strike to the core of a subject, and working towards solving them. Physics is about seeking a deep, fundamental understanding of the behaviour of the natural world.

Our Department is research intensive with a strong commitment to excellence in teaching. Our unique undergraduate programs begin by teaching students the fundamental concepts and ideas through which physics has transformed the modern world. Students then learn how to translate these ideas into the elegant language of mathematics, and use these ideas to solve questions and develop understanding.
