At Penn, the curriculum for undergraduate Physics majors, which includes extensive laboratory experience, is based on faculty strengths in many fields: Condensed Matter Physics, Medical Physics, Elementary Particle Physics, Cosmology, Astrophysics, Biophysics, Nanoscience, String Theory and other fields. Undergraduate teaching is linked to faculty research efforts and many undergraduates participate in research.
PROSPECTIVE STUDENT VISITS
All visiting students are welcome to sit in any Physics and Astronomy class they are interested in without having to make an appointment. If you are on campus, check with the department at 209 S. 33rd Street, Room 2E5, DRL or call 215-898-8141 for times and locations.
If you would like to visit and meet with the Undergraduate Chair, Justin Khoury, please contact him in advance firstname.lastname@example.org of your arrival date to make sure he is available or to arrange for other faculty members to meet with in his absence.
