Physics and astronomy are disciplines that have given us the tools to stretch human understanding of the universe, from the building blocks of matter to the structure and evolution of the most distant galaxies. Courses at Agnes Scott cover subjects as common as gravity and electricity, and as unusual as quantum mechanics, relativity and dark matter.
