Research Opportunities

Students who demonstrate motivation and talent are encouraged to gain experience in research. There are opportunities for a student to work with faculty on research projects as early as during the freshman year or as a senior for a senior thesis project. Alternatively, many of our students have successfully applied for summer research opportunities at national laboratories and other major research institutions. Below is a list of research done by Eckerd Faculty.

Beyond the Classroom

Physics Majors
