Welcome to Acadia Physics!

Welcome to the Acadia Physics Department!  Physics is a way of thinking.  It is the study of the laws of nature that govern all physical phenomena from the smallest to the largest scales.

Physicists try to answer questions about why and how things work in our world.  We develop creative new technologies, solve interesting problems, and see how the experiments we do and theories we develop work together consistently.

We offer a first-class degree in physics with small classes that are student focused.  You will get to know your classmates and professors.  Faculty and staff will take the extra time and effort to ensure that your undergraduate experience will serve as an excellent launch point toward your future.  We are nestled in the heart of Wolfville, a quintessential university town that offers an incredible array of cultural and recreational opportunities, in addition to great shopping and restaurants.

Please take some time to explore our website.  We would love to share the joy of physics with you and help you to prepare for a life and a future that is enriched by both the knowledge and the way of thinking you will gain from studying physics.  Please contact us if you have any questions.  We would be delighted to hear from you!
