As a university-wide policy, all students are required to do a senior project. The BA requirement is one quarter of senior project. The BS requirement is two quarters. You will work closely with a physics department faculty member while completing your senior research project. (Students sometimes do their senior project before their senior year!)
This document explains what a senior project is, how to go about getting started, and what to expect for successful completion of the course. Course Guideline.
Finding a Project
To help students find a research advisor, we maintain an up-to-date faculty research page.
Submitting your project
Please refer to the Kennedy Library guidelines for formatting and submission to the Digital Commons. Projects can be held privately or distributed publically. All authors and supervisors should agree on the type of distribution before the project is submitted.
