Physics, Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences
Welcome to Boston College Physics. As a department, we are a community of over 150, including faculty, administrative staff, postdocs, visiting scientists, and graduate and undergraduate students. Devoted to our teaching, service and research missions, all of our 19 faculty teach lecture courses and actively involve students in their research. Our research program is “decidedly noncomprehensive”, with intentional foci on fundamental and applied condensed matter and nanoscale physics. Our campus home is Higgins Hall, at the heart of the BC Chestnut Hill campus at the western edge of Boston, and fully renovated in 2002 with state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories.
