Physics Honors students who satisfactorily complete an undergraduate Honors Thesis based on research in Physics are eligible to receive the BS degree with Departmental Honors in Physics. Usually the research will be carried out under the direction of a member of the faculty of the Department of Physics. The satisfactory completion of the Honors Thesis will be judged by the Thesis research director in conjunction with the Physics Department's Honors Committee. The candidate for Department Honors must request approval of candidacy prior to the beginning of the senior year. Upon acceptance by the department, the candidate shall enroll in PHYS 4177, PHYS 4277, and PHYS 4377 for successive semesters and must have accumulated a total of 6 semester hours of PHYS 1477, PHYS 2477, and PHYS 3477 credit on completion of the Honors Thesis Program.
