Department Chair: Clayton Heller

The mission of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia Southern University is four-fold. First, to provide its majors with a strong, basic undergraduate physics/astronomy education that will serve them whether they pursue an advanced degree in physics, a professional career in medicine or dentistry, a career in industry or in science education. Second, to provide excellent instruction in introductory physics and astronomy to non-majors. Third, to conduct original research in physics and astronomy that is recognized at regional, national, and international levels. Fourth, to foster an interest in science in the community and the region.
