Students interested in research experience in Physics, should see the Undergraduate research page and the list of faculty that are willing to have undergrads working in their research units.

Students interested in graduate school or research in general, should think about applying to a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program the summer of their junior year. REU programs have a wide range of topics and are available in many universities across the country.

There are internship opportunities in Physics Education (sponsored by MAST). Gain experience needed for teaching credential programs. The Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) has named UC Davis one of eighteen national demonstration sites for the education of physics teachers. We encourage all physics majors to get some teaching experience by taking advantage of the following opportunities: Physics 7 Learning Assistant, MAST I, MAST II, MAST II. For more information email mbstevenson@ucdavis.edu.

Other internships and career services are available at the Internship and Career Center, including Internship and Career Faires and resume assistance.
