Physics Majors & Minors at CWRU

A list of physics majors and minors and contact information – viewable only from computers logged in via CWRUnet or VPN. To see where where our seniors have gone after graduation, go to http://physics.case.edu/hsstudent-info/physics-majors-where-did-they-go-from-here/. (As of August 2021, the pages for our majors and minors are unavailable, pending modifications to a department server.)

Undergraduate Research And Senior Projects

Information about PHYS 390, Undergraduate Research in Physics, and PHYS 351/353, Senior Research Projects.  This posting includes a list of publications with undergraduate authors

Undergraduate Newsletter

Before 2021, this posting was treated as a source of news for undergraduate physics majors and minors. However, in recent years, the department has developed a range of other methods to distribute news to students. This includes a Google Group used for direct email of important announcements, plus Facebook and Twitter news feeds accessible via the department home page. This posting has accordingly been converted to an archive of information, like notices of important policies regarding courses and degree programs, awards earned by our majors, links to web sites of interest to physics students, and more. Viewing this page might require login via CWRUnet or VPN.

Study Abroad

Information for CWRU students (particularly physics majors) interested in studying abroad.

CWRU Physics and Astronomy Club

A club, run entirely by our undergraduate students, whose main purpose is to promote interest in physics and astronomy to all members of the CWRU community.
