Physics Honors Program

The Honors Program in physics is open to outstanding senior-year majors at the invitation of the department faculty.

Students in this program will normally be expected to complete the graduate study preparation program and must carry out a special project in experimental or theoretical physics or astrophysics under the direction of a member of the department.

Honors students write a thesis based on their work and take comprehensive examinations. The physics major requirement of Physics 414 may be waived upon request for an honors student whose project is in experimental physics.
