uc davis physics students work on lab assignment together


College of Letters and Science

From subatomic particles to galaxies with billions of stars, physics studies what the universe is made of and how it works. As a physics minor at UC Davis, you will learn about our present understanding of the universe and also have the opportunity to join with our faculty in research that pushes forward the frontier of knowledge. This research ranges from the very smallest distances associated with elementary particle physics through nanophysics and superconductivity and on to the structure and evolution of the entire universe.
