All Physics and Biophysics majors do some original research in collaboration with an established physicist on-campus or at another university, industrial or national laboratory. If students enroll for 3 credits of PHYS 495 or HONS 497H, they may prepare a Senior Thesis. Undergraduate Research Scholarships are available through the Office of Research & Creative Scholarship when students collaborate with Andrews Physics faculty.
