The mission of the Department of Physics at Santa Clara University is to offer our students a science education in the true liberal arts tradition: a strong, challenging curriculum taught in small classes by committed faculty.

Students find a home here in physics; it is a place where faculty are accessible and interested, and where groups of students regularly work and relax together.
We are excited to bring you the second issue of the Department of Physics newsletter. Volume 2, October 2012
