The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers exceptional academic opportunities for undergraduate and graduate study in physics and astronomy, while providing outstanding research facilities both on and off campus. The faculty have a strong commitment to teaching with a deep concern for preparing students for existing jobs in physics and related disciplines. The research opportunities offered by the Department of Physics and Astronomy are in some cases unique at a university and at a level expected only in much larger departments. The main focus of research is in the area of Condensed Matter Theory and Experiment, but other internationally recognized research programs exist as well. These research efforts are fostered by the existence of the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR), a 10 MW light-water moderated reactor that is the highest-power university research reactor in the country.
