Department of Physics and Astronomy


Public Lecture Series

This lecture series began in Fall 2016, and is sponsored by the USC Provost and the Vice President for Research.  Each speaker in this series will give an open colloquium, presented at a level approachable by any interested undergraduate students.  

In addition, each distinguished guest will give a public lecture on the USC campus.  These public lectures are designed to engage the broader community of Columbia and South Carolina, and will touch on exciting topics at the forefront of physics and astronomy.  These talks are meant to be accessible to a broad public audience, including not only the USC students, faculty and staff, but also high school students, alumni, friends and neighbors of the University.

All events are free of charge and everyone is invited!
