Physics and Astronomy Department

At the particle accelerator

At Union, physics and astronomy classes are small and personal, instruction is characterized by individual attention, labs are taught by the regular faculty rather than by graduate students, and all students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research with faculty. In the photo, faculty and students work with the Accelerator in the Union College Ion Beam Analysis Laboratory in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Please also see Examples of Undergraduate Research Projects for a video about the accelerator.

See Summer 2024 Undergraduate Research Opportunities for a listing of Summer Research Opportunities in the Department and advice for applying to external programs.
