Research with Undergraduates

All of Wooster's physics faculty are actively engaged in research involving undergraduates. During the academic year, our focus is on the College's nationally-recognized Independent Study program. Every summer since 1994, we have also run a 8 to 10 week summer research program, currently funded by the National Science Foundation.

Students in the program have come from Wooster and from 54 colleges or universities in 22 states. (In turn, Wooster students have performed summer research at many other institutions.)
