Physics at Augsburg
At Augsburg, we are fortunate to be able to pursue our passion for physics in the heart of the Twin Cities. Our faculty are focused on providing students a rigorous and experimental-based education. We do this through small class sizes (we graduate roughly ten students per year), nationally recognized research – primarily in the areas of space physics and biophysics – and a dedication to the career aspirations of our students.
