As a physics major, get ready to jump into exciting research programs led by expert faculty in astronomy, physics, engineering, and science education—many of which are funded by the National Science Foundation, NASA, and the Department of Energy. You'll even have opportunities to travel to world-class conferences and places like Puerto Rico, China, Switzerland, Chile, and Greenland. Not only will you gain an understanding of the laws of physics and their relevance to the world we live in, you'll develop marketable skills like an ability to design experiments, how to best analyze and present data, critical thinking, and data science.

Siena named a top college for women in physics

Siena was recently recognized by the American Institute of Physics as one of only 21 school in the country to graduate 40% women in physics.  For comparison, the national averages is 20%.

Research Opportunities

Our faculty have active research grants from the National Science Foundation, NASA, and Department of Energy. Saints study anywhere from right on Siena's campus to Genève, Switzerland, and the Canary Islands, Spain.
