Physics is a study of how the universe works. It's the study of the tiniest particle – the structure of an atom's nucleus – to the vast universe. You can learn about astrophysics and cosmology through one of Atlantic Canada's largest astronomical telescopes at the Grenfell Campus Observatory. Or you can explore the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism, quantum mechanics or particle physics.

Grenfell's physics courses include:

  • The solar system
  • Electromagnetic theory
  • Thermodynamics
  • Computational mechanics
  • Elementary particles and fields
  • Galaxies and cosmology
  • Mathematical physics
  • Observational astrophysics

  • Physics 1050 (or 1020), 1051, 2053, 2056, 2820.
  • An additional nine credit hours in physics at the 2000 level or above.
