Dr. Michael Orleski Astronomy

Physics is considered by many to be the most basic of the sciences. It impacts directly on the study of Biology and Chemistry, and can be a useful adjunct to the study of Mathematics, Computer Science and other professional areas. The Physics program offers courses for Natural Science, Mathematics and Computer Science majors and for students in many of the professional programs, such as Speech-Language Pathology, Medical Imaging, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy. Physics courses also enrich the education of Humanities majors.
