Department of 物理


Harvey Mudd College offers a physics major with both depth and breadth in classical and modern physics, theory and experiment, foundations and applications as well as a joint major in physics and mathematics. The 物理 program constitutes a rigorous foundation for graduate work or employment in physics and other technical fields. We have a vigorous student-faculty research program in a wide variety of fields in experimental and theoretical physics.

我们的核心价值观: The Harvey Mudd College 物理 Department recognizes the value, 尊严, and humanity of every member of our community. We strive to conduct ourselves with honesty and integrity. We commit to building an environment that is welcoming, 支持, and free from racism, 偏见, and all forms of intimidation, 骚扰, 和歧视. And we challenge ourselves to pursue educational and scientific excellence that embodies these values.


Junior and senior physics majors attend our biweekly colloquium series, held on Tuesday afternoons at 4:30 p.m. 在沙那汉B460. The talks are open to all students and to the public, and are frequently attended by scientists from the other Claremont Colleges, 加州大学波莫纳分校, 和其他人. The series features speakers from a broad range of institutions and fields of physics.
