ASU’s bioscience research enterprise is producing the next generation of scientists and educators through an approach that breaks down the traditional silos between academic disciplines and brings together world-renowned experts to solve critical global challenges in energy, health, sustainability, engineering and education.
Earth and space science studies at ASU expand the frontiers of knowledge about the structure, processes, and history of Earth, as well as the solar system - from distant galaxies in the Universe to the most fundamental questions of astrobiology and astronomy.
At ASU, our world-class faculty and students use engineering and technology to address the world’s grand challenges in energy, healthcare, sustainability, education and security.
ASU embraces the challenge of teaching mathematics to students with a wide variety of backgrounds, abilities and needs and how to apply their skills to real-world challenges.
With degrees in speech and hearing science, psychology and behavioral sciences, ASU pioneers new opportunities in education, research and collaborations, including a neuroscience graduate degree in conjunction with the Barrow Neurological Institute.
What does it mean to be human? ASU addresses this question through the study of origins and human evolution.
Chemistry and physics at ASU are at the leading-edge of scientific and technological advancements in spectroscopy, cosmology, nuclear and particle physics, biological physics, synthesis, molecular biology, biochemistry, biomimicry and geochemistry.
ASU delivers breakthroughs in a broad range of strategic research areas, from next generation health diagnostic exams and cancer vaccines, to conservation, ethics and reliable and efficient alternative fuels, with support from ASU's Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development.
ASU is home to a range of research centers founded to help decision makers and institutions grapple with the immense power and importance of science and technology as society charts a course for the future.
Sustainability at ASU is more than a buzzword: it is a philosophy that we are constantly working to incorporate into our research, education, outreach and operations.
Physics is such a fundamental science that is at the foundation of all fields of science, engineering and technology. Students and faculty in the Department of Physics advance a broad range of themes, including materials and nanoscale science, biological physics, particle-astrophysics, and cosmology. All of these topics extend beyond the traditional boundaries of physics.
Arizona State University has sustained world leadership in electron diffraction physics and high resolution electron microscopy, as well as in solid state phenomena at nanometer scales; strengths that have greatly expanded in recent years.
From state-of-the-art instrumentation ito experimental research at the smallest scales, our physics faculty is among the finest in research and mentoring, and nationally recognized for science education. In addition to experimental research, ASU also continues to generate impressive research in theoretical physics including cosmology, nuclear and particle physics, and biological physics.
Our commitment is first and foremost to developing the highest quality programs and research opportunities for students engaged in the study of physics. We offer undergraduate degrees in physics, physics secondary education and biophysics, two professional master's degrees and doctoral degrees with four areas of focus.
Our students go on to positions in industry or academia prepared with a top-notch physics educational experience. These successes come from the combination of dedicated staff with exemplary faculty members.
