Welcome to the CSI Department of Physics and Astronomy!  The faculty, undergraduates, and graduate students of the Department conduct leading-edge research in numerous areas of study including astrophysics and cosmology; theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics; theoretical nuclear and high-energy physics; photonics; and nanotechnology.  We offer undergraduate Bachelor's of Science degrees in Physics (major and minor), including degrees with a focus in Astrophysics or in Teaching (grades 7-12).  We also mentor and advise Ph.D. students in Physics and Astronomy through our consortium partnership with the CUNY Graduate Center; and we provide service courses in astronomy and physics to more than 2,000 CSI students each year.
