Physics explores the principles and laws that serve as the fundamentals of natural phenomena, and its targets extend over a broad range, from elementary particles to the cosmos, artificial substances, and living organisms/environment. Based on the spirit of the university's foundation of the "advancement of science," the Department of Physics opens its doors widely to young people and working people who wish to study in the evening.
