Welcome to the Physics Department
The physics department is a medium-sized department with 30 regular, research, and adjunct faculty members and approximately 35 graduate students. Programs of study lead to M.S. and Ph.D degrees in both pure and applied physics. The Institute for Astrophysics and Computational Sciences (IACS) also operates through the CUA Physics Department.
A group of 11 Catholic University students were given a behind-the-scenes look at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center earlier this month, as part of a special program intended to promote interest in the sciences while introducing them to the work of University faculty at the national science facility.
The tour, which was open to all honors students, regardless of major, was organized by Vadim Uritsky, associate professor of physics and director of the University’s Institute for Astrophysics and Computational Sciences, and Jennifer Paxton, clinical assistant professor of history and assistant director of the University Honors Program.
