    Plasma Physics colleges in or around PA?

    Hello all,

    Are there any such major as for Plasma Physics or Plasma is just an option? What are the different types of Physics minus Astronomy? Is astrophysics part astronomy and part physics? If so we can forget about astrophysics. What are some good public not private colleges for physics in or around the PA area? Thank you for any replies.

    The PA area?. That's rather large. Any particular region. I am attending IUP(Indiana University of PA) this fall. They have undergrad and grad studies in physics.

    Hey, thank you for your reply. What major are you in at IUP? The Philly region (well I hope soon I move to Philly. Suppose to move)..

    I am sure there is a school around Philly that offers a Physics degree.

    I am majoring in Applied Math. Finally going to work on my masters.

    Look on the PA map. It's in Indiana, PA. It's closer Pittsburgh, so you are on the far side.

    Yes, I am. I will be 45 in September. I know, I'm Methusalah.

    I have had several young whippersnappers bring that up. As if to allude that I am too old to go to grad school. Oh well, I'll just head to my cane rocker and forget about it. Instead, I'll sit on the front porch and yell at passers by.

    I have more on the ball now than when I was your age. I was too busy 'burning' brain cells back then.

    4 hours 45 minutes. Too far. I don't know of any colleges that would offer at least Engineering Physics or any type of Physics. The closest would be NJIT in Newark, NJ but they offer things like Applied Physics and Applied Math or with an option in Optical Science or with Lasers.

    I was in no way alluding that you are too old for Grad School, I am just surprised since you seem to have the knowledge of a PHD Mathematician. Man, you are going to turn some heads in grad school I bet.
