Dr. Lloyd Makarowitz, Chairperson

Department of Physics

The Physics Department at Farmingdale State College provides its students with an understanding of the interactions among all forms of matter, energy, and space. Toward this end, the Department offers each student a physics education carefully tailored to suit his/her needs at all levels of baccalaureate education.

Students pursuing science-related or technically-oriented degrees take either the algebra-based College Physics sequence (PHY 135 and PHY 136) or the calculus-based Physics sequence (PHY 143 and PHY 144). Students who complete these sequences may also choose from a number of electives covering such fields as electromagnetic theory and modern physics.

Students not pursuing a science-related field of study may choose from among a diverse assortment of physical science courses, including astronomy, meteorology, geology, and the environment. These specialized courses for non-science students are taught by faculty with strong interest and expertise in the respective sub-disciplines. Students have the opportunity to taste the flavor of science and to appreciate its value to humanity in a technical society.

The Department of Physics offers a rich Minor program for those interested in extra rigor in the discipline. The Department of Physics conducts research in experimental condensed matter physics, astrophysics, nuclear and particle physics.  Students are heavily involved in all research investigation.
