Undergraduate Research, 100% Guarantee

department of physics

As a policy, the Department of Physics at Boston College offers a 100% guarantee that a research opportunity will be made available to all physics majors that seek one, providing they meet the required criteria. We go to great lengths to honor this commitment. These are paid positions and are available through the Fall, Spring and Summer seasons to students who are at least in their Sophomore year. Please visit the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences for further information regarding the Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program and eligibility requirements.

Please visit the Physics web site where you will find information describing our faculty and research groups. This will allow you to begin to identify your interests. We strongly advise you to contact a number of professors to discuss potential research opportunities. Ideally you will find an environment that will be a good match for your interests, your passion, and your personality. You should never hesitate to contact a professor whose research looks particularly interesting to you. Please contact Sile Power should you have any questions regarding the URF program.
