New international study program for physics majors

Author: Shelly Goethals

The University of Notre Dame’s International Studies office has announced that it will offer three new opportunities for study abroad in South Korea, Spain and Switzerland in spring 2014. Of special interest to physics majors should be the program in Switzerland.

Through Boston University’s Geneva-Physics program, Notre Dame students will have the opportunity to study at the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland. The program, which combines coursework in quantum physics and electrodynamics at UNIGE and directed research at CERN, is open to physics majors who have completed at least two semesters of college-level French or the equivalent. Additionally, students will be required to complete a specially designed French-language tutorial before going to Geneva.

Applications for all these new programs are available online.
