About our students: We are recently graduating between 10 and 15 physics majors each year. Our students are intellectually curious with diverse interests both within and beyond physics; many are double majors . Almost all of our physics majors are doing research, typically becoming active by their sophomore years. Many of them also travel, either as part of a semester abroad program or to present their work at scientific conferences.
