Physics Track

Students in a lab

The Benedictine College Physics & Astronomy Department is committed to offering hands-on laboratory experiences that have prepared our alumni for successful careers in a wide variety of fields. Our BCYC Immersion track will offer some of those same introductory physics and astronomy laboratory experiences, showing students how the complexities of God’s universe can be explored and understood using the tools of experimental science. Students will learn how to make precise physical measurements in order examine the laws of motion, heat, and optics, and to analyze astronomical images.
