Kenyon is suspending its residential program and transitioning to remote instruction. Read more about Kenyon's response to COVID-19.
Physics is the study of natural principles at work in phenomena from subatomic particles to the galaxies and beyond.
At Kenyon, students develop a sound knowledge of these principles and the analytical and experimental techniques used to apply them to a broad range of problems.
The physics department at Kenyon is small, graduating an average of eight majors every year. That means students have extraordinary access to the six full-time members. Faculty members are active researchers and the department has a strong student-faculty summer research program with access to the very best equipment. Learn more about the department.
