About Auburn University
Auburn, a world class Physics Department is a priority. The study of physics prepares students for a broad spectrum of exciting careers because it is essential in the growing complexity of our our highly technological world.
Though the Auburn campus is large, the Physics Department maintains a surprisingly high ratio of faculty members to our physics majors and graduate students. This means that each student receives the sort of individual attention that is usually only available at much smaller schools.
