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.
