Maddy Boettner, Century College graduate and UWRF undergrad in Physics

WELCOME to the UWRF Physics Department, part of the UW System Center of Excellence for Undergraduate Physics and Chemistry.

We help students learn physics and astronomy by maintaining a rigorous, quality curriculum within a supportive environment.

For students interested in engineering, a field with a broad variety of pathways and specializations, we provide affordable plans in pre-engineering, engineering, the physics dual degree program and numerous certificate options.

Our mission includes excellent teaching, individualized advising, opportunities for student research, and public outreach.

UWRF routinely offers university scholarships, and we have scholarships for physics majors to help make tuition more affordable.
