Internships offer an excellent opportunity to gain work/research experience and to supplement on-campus studies.  Click on Independent Research and Summer Research Opportunities for additional information.

Typical sites for physics internships include government laboratories such a Brookhaven, Argonne, and Oak Ridge, as well as many fine industrial and university labs (many of which are listed on the Physics Department's Summer Research Opportunities webpage).  When undertaking an internship for credit, students are required to submit a paper and present a colloquium on their projects in the fall semester following such internships. 

  • In many cases, selection for these programs is nationally competitive. Since many of the application deadlines are in January and February, interested students should discuss these programs with their advisors early in their sophomore or junior years.
  • In addition, information flyers are posted on Masters Hall bulletin boards and emails forwarded, as they are received.
  • The Center for Global Education is also a great source of information and assistance for students exploring internship possibilities.
