PHYS 491 - Physics Senior Thesis

Credits: 2-3

Physics majors in this course will work under the direction of a faculty member on a research topic of their own choosing.  Students will plan and carry out independent research that will culminate in both a written thesis and a formal presentation of their work (either a talk or poster at an approved meeting or a local/departmental colloquium).  This course will focus on experimental, theoretical, or computational techniques particular to the chosen problem/subject of the research as well as effective science communication (both written and oral).  This course is for senior level physics majors.
