Pacific University Theatre's fall production, Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, runs Oct. 18-21 on the Forest Grove Campus.
Delve into the theoretical and practical aspects of physics — a field fundamental to the science, engineering and technology industries.
Benefit from innovative teaching methods with an emphasis on active classroom experiences. Learn in cutting-edge environments, guided by the best ideas from leading physics education researchers.
Enjoy a learn-by-doing approach that begins with a first-year introductory class taught without formal lectures and continues in upper-division courses where students work on sophisticated, open-ended projects.
Work in teams to make a wide range of computer-aided measurements to study physics principles and collect and analyze real data (the way a professional scientist would) to discover how physics works in the real world.
Work with a diverse group of peers: 30 percent of our physics students are women and 30 percent are from Hawai'i.
The NSF announced this month it had awarded Associate Professor Andrew Dawes, physics and a team of undergraduate researchers a third, three-year grant to study quantum optics. “I’m proud we can offer a lab environment with the same cutting-edge equipment you would find at top-tier institutions like Harvard and M.I.T.,” Dawes said.
Pacific University Education Professor Mike Charles has been awarded an Endeavour Executive Fellowship to support a collaborative professional development project with teachers in Australia.
