The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Sacramento State has been preparing students for graduate school, teaching careers, and industrial employment for over sixty five years.  Based in Sequoia Hall, overlooking the American River, our students interact closely with faculty members in and out of the classroom.  Educators of the highest quality and excellent laboratory facilities have led Sac State Physics Alumni to graduate programs at institutions such as MIT, Berkeley, Stanford, Princeton, and Harvard not to mention wonderful careers in government, private industry, and education.

Alumni: We're looking for you! Look at the classmates that we've already found.
