The Physics department at the University of Arkansas was established in 1907. A master’s degree program was added in 1939 and a doctoral program was added in 1959. In 1964, the department had the first doctoral program graduate. In the 2007-2008 academic year, the Physics department celebrated its centennial with a series of lectures by distinguished physicists during the academic year and a three day event attended by students, faculty, alumni, former faculty, and guests.
