We have advanced technology on-site. Start using the equipment you’ll use in your career before you earn your bachelor’s degree.

Sitter Family Hall includes state-of-the-art laboratories, electronics equipment, astronomical and optical technologies, specialized research and testing facilities, smart classrooms, and collaborative workspaces.


Professor of Physics & Engineering, Dr. Jerry Crawford

"The discoveries of physics are the basis of all the amazing technologies that surround us, and their applications continue to help us solve many of the complex problems we face in our modern world."

What can you do with a Physics minor?

A minor in Physics from FLC sets you apart with truly unparalleled research and experiential opportunities that students at larger universities typically don’t get until they’re in graduate programs. Small classes mean that you get direct guidance and attention from faculty.

Using advanced technologies on campus sets you up to get to work faster in your graduate studies or employment after you graduate.
