Research with Undergraduates

All of Wooster's physics faculty are actively engaged in research involving undegraduates. During the academic year, this research is nourished by the College's nationally-recognized Independent Study program. During the summer, it is facilitated by our annual summer research program, which began in 1994. Students in the program have come from Wooster and from 43 colleges or universities in 21 states. (In turn, Wooster students have performed summer research at many other institutions.)
