Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Natural Sciences

The Faculty of Physics, Mathematics and Natural Sciences is an integrated unit that provides its training in two major branches – physical and mathematical sciences and natural sciences. The faculty was born as a merge of the oldest faculties of Penza State University that were originally founded in the late 1930s. Through its history it has been dedicated to delivering fundamental knowledge, fostering scientific literacy among students and giving them unique hands-on experience in the chosen field of study.

The physics and mathematics division prioritises innovative methods of teacher training. Typical for Russia unfailing popularity of teaching profession in physics, mathematics and, lately, in informatics leads to stable high numbers of applicants. Physics and computer laboratories located in the old atmospheric building always provide ample opportunities for designing and performing experiments, learning how to record and analyse results and draw conclusions. Solid theoretical foundations and acquired practical experience allow students to build their careers in the world, where knowledge of STEM fields is a standard.

The natural sciences division enables mastering biology, chemistry, geosciences, and ecology. The faculty boasts excellent laboratories of general and organic chemistry, biochemistry. There is the Zoological Museum with around 2000 exhibits and the Mineralogical Museum with fantastic collections of minerals collected by both students and teaching staff during expeditions. The botanical collection in I.I. Sprygin Botanical Garden contains amazing 200000 exhibits of common and rare plants.

The special emphasis is placed on student research, so that graduates are able to enter the competitive field armoured with necessary research skills. Dedicated teaching staff do not only encourage student learning, but also actively support extracurricular activities – hiking trips, ski tours, music and dance concerts.
