The universe is awaiting your exploration
The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Northern Arizona University offers various bachelor’s degrees, a master’s degree in Applied Physics, and a doctoral degree in Astronomy and Planetary Science.
The department has a small, family feeling. At NAU, your instructors will know you by name; they are easily accessible, and they genuinely care about student success. Lecture courses are taught almost exclusively by full-time faculty. Both undergraduate and graduate students are routinely and deeply involved in faculty research.
