Physics Physics

Class outside? Yes please! Is there any other proper way to teach Modern Physics on such a beautiful day with our wonderful professor Doreen Weinberger?


A Special Thank You to Malgorzata and Jurek Phabe

Malgorzata and Jurek PhabeMalgorzata and Jurek Phabe have been instrumental in building the wonderful community that exists in the physics department today. Over the years they have put their whole heart into studying physics and helping their students at every turn. We can never thank you enough for all of your contributions here at Smith.

Women in Physics

Women account for less than 20 percent of the bachelor's degrees in physics, which is why we are proud to support so many women every day in this field, along with other STEM fields where women are underrepresented, such as engineering.

Watch this amazing video that shares stories and encouragement from many women in physics from around the world, without sugarcoating!
