The physics program at St. Mary's College of Maryland received the American Physical Society's Committee on Education 2017 Award for Improving Undergraduate Education. We were also featured as an exemplar case study in the report, Phys21: Preparing Physics Students for 21st Century Careers. Faculty and student research includes Physics Education Research (PER), sometimes in collaboration with colleagues in the Educational Studies program.
Students interested in teaching physics can receive their undergraduate degree with a major in physics and a minor in educational studies, then complete St. Mary's MAT program in just one additional year. We are currently working to increase the number of physics teachers we train over the next few years.
