Why Physics at UIC? Heading link

Instructor points at whiteboard while students take notes

The Department of Physics at UIC combines the unique research opportunities of a Research I (very high research activity) university with a commitment to undergraduate education. Our faculty are world-class researchers and dedicated educators, many of whom have won awards recognizing their teaching. Our undergraduates conduct hands-on research, publish in scientific journals, and are mentored by faculty on the cutting edge of their fields.

Our undergraduate program offers both BA and BS degrees in physics and a Masters of Education track offered in partnership with the College of Education. We also offer a flexible and exciting minor in physics that allows students to also pursue their interest in physics while obtaining a different degree at UIC.
