The physics department seeks to discern and unfold the implications of Christ's preeminence in physics by pursuing the following general aims:
In our programs and in our service to other departments, we seek to provide a solid grounding in the discipline of physics while at the same time providing a foundation for understanding the relation of physics to such disciplines as philosophy and theology.
In our major program we seek to prepare students for graduate school or for teaching in secondary school, by providing a solid conceptual grasp of the discipline itself and also of issues in the discipline related to other disciplines.
In our service programs we aim to prepare pre-engineering students for the dual degree program on a level suitable for study at Georgia Tech, pre-med students for the MCAT, and others for the various disciplines in which physics will be used.
For both science and non-science majors, we hope to impart a sense of awe over the beauty and wonder of God's world and over His glory and faithfulness as He upholds the regularities we observe in the physical sciences.
