Honors Track in Physics

The goal of this Honors program is to give our most talented students an exceptional background in Physics research. Participation will increase their level of commitment and productivity while preparing them for successful postgraduate work. The program accepts junior Physics majors in good academic standing in the Spring of their Sophomore year, who have identified their research advisor in the Department of Physics and have already completed one semester of undergraduate research. Acceptance is based on a research statement and transcript. Upon acceptance into the program a formal agreement is arranged between the student and the advisor.
