Senior Capstone Experience

Students research and complete a senior capstone paper and presentation on an upper-level physics topic that extends a student’s knowledge of physics. Over the course of the block, students complete workshops, topic proposals, peer review sessions, and increasingly complex presentations. This work leads to a paper completed over the course of the fall semester, supported by additional workshops and peer review sessions. Presentations are scheduled in the spring semester. Successful completion of this course is required of all physics majors. 1 unit.
