Our Programs

From nono-rods to binary stars to coastal sea breezes to neuron simulation

There’s so much to study in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

One major perk of studying at the College of Charleston is that you can individualize your course of study.

Take physics, for example. You can choose to earn a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science. You can choose to add a concentration in energy production or computational neuroscience. 

Maybe you'll add a minor in astronomy or meteorology.
