Summer Programs

Participating in research while an undergraduate is an important part of a physicist's education. The Department of Physics and Astronomy recognizes this and requires its graduates to do a Senior Project. While many students perform their research under the guidance of our own faculty members, others elect to participate in summer research programs at National Laboratories or other universities. The Links below will help you find these programs.
