Physics & Astronomy Webmaster: Jill Mogg

What is physics? Physics is the foundation of science. It is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other. But because everything around us is made up of matter and energy, then physics really explains how things work, from the smallest particles to the structure of the universe. If you want to truly understand  the world around you, then welcome to our universe. You'll enjoy it here.

Welcome to Fall Semester 2015

IGNITE Staff and Students 


On Tuesday, August 18th, as part of the new YSU IGNITE program, we had the opportunity to host a "meet and greet" with some of our newest majors, along our upperclassmen, faculty and staff.   It was a great chance to get to relax, make some ice cream, and learn more about the department.
