Faculty Research Interests

Research Interests

ResearchStudent participation in research is considered an integral part of the Millersville Physics program and is a required capstone experience for graduation. This research experience provides an opportunity for students to apply their problem solving skills to an open ended, unstructured, "real world" problem.

During his or her senior year, a Millersville physics major chooses a faculty mentor for the research project. The physics faculty have wide ranging interests and are engaged in a variety of research endeavors which allow the physics major great latitude in choosing an interesting and intellectually challenging problem.
