"We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology."
Carl Sagan (1934 - 1996)
The study of Physics provides a fantastic foundation that supports lifelong learning, teaching and discovering about the natural world. National efforts aimed at increasing the role of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curriculum from primary through college levels will ultimately affect many aspects of America's global technology competitiveness including immigration policy, national security, and workforce development.
The Physics department here at Texas State University actively contributes to engaging students in STEM coursework through its education and research activity.
