General Information About the Program
Eastern Mediterranean University's (EMU) Physics Department was founded in 1986. Our education and research processes - currently maintained by qualified academic personnel - are always on the rise in agreement with our level of superiority, defined by our principles. We have been transferring our extraordinary achievements in our postgraduate (MS / Ph.D.) programs to the BS Physics Program, which was paused in 1998 but was re-activated in the 2020-2021 academic year. (*).
The mission of the undergraduate program in Physics is to provide students with a strong foundation in both classical and modern physics. The goal of the program is to develop both quantitative problem-solving skills and the ability to conceive experiments and analyze and interpret data. The program prepares students for careers in fields that benefit from quantitative and analytical thinking, including physics, engineering, teaching, medicine, law, science writing, and science policy, in government or the private sector. In some cases, the path to this career will be through an advanced degree in physics or a professional program.
The courses taken by our B.S.
majors provide a comprehensive foundation in Physics. Starting in the first
year, introductory mechanics and electromagnetism courses include both lecture
and laboratory components. Physics major takes lecture courses in modern Physics,
advanced classical mechanics, and computational methods in Physics. Besides,
the B.S. Physics major will have lecture courses in quantum mechanics,
statistical mechanics/thermodynamics, and advanced electricity and magnetism. Students
will also take courses on condensed matter physics, cosmology, general
relativity, laser physics, nuclear and particle physics, and optics. The
applications of many course topics will be carried out in our modern undergraduate
Physics laboratories. Also, our students will be enabled to express themselves
through project and seminar lessons, and thus be ready for their future
Double Major Program
We also offer cross-disciplinary education by promoting a collaborative curriculum with the Mathematics and Chemistry departments, where our students can achieve double major degrees from our department, to suit the needs of the evolving 21st-century industry. Do you want to learn more about our double major? Visit the double major websites for Physics-Mathematics and Computer Science or Physics-Chemistry.

Student Learning Outcomes
· Outcome 1: Conceptual and analytical understanding of the four major areas of physics: Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism, Quantum Mechanics, and Statistical Physics
· Outcome 2: Understanding of scientific reasoning, i.e., the roles of theory, hypothesis, and experiment in the scientific method.
· Outcome 3: Demonstration of a working knowledge of laboratory & programming skills as they relate to gathering data and comparing data to the predictions of theoretical models.
The B.S. degree in Physics is
traditionally taken by students interested in a career in physics research in
government or industry, or in college- and university-level teaching and
research. Nationally, about half of all B.S. Physics students go on to graduate
school, either in Physics, engineering or another professional area. At EMU, many
of our B.S. majors continue their studies after graduation. Others choose to
take immediate employment in a variety of technical fields in industry, teaching,
government, institutions and organizations. EMU Physics graduates always earn
prestigious national and international scholarships and are admitted to top
graduate programs, institutions and professional schools.
Pedagogical Formation Program
The Department of Educational Sciences
carries out the pedagogical formation program determined by the Higher Education Council in order to gain teaching proficiency to students who have been or are studying in programs offered by faculties other than Education faculties. Please Visit the Website
