Congratulations to the Class of 2018!

Nine physics majors received their Williams diplomas on June 3, 2018. All of the physics departments in the United States, including those at large universities, awarded an average of 9.7 bachelor’s degrees per department; for four-year institutions the average was 6.1 (see here).  Our relatively large number of physics majors at Williams indicates that we have a robust, thriving department. We educate more undergraduate physics majors than many PhD-granting departments.

Five of our 2018 grads completed senior theses.  Three had double majors (in mathematics, economics, and theatre).  Two graduated with highest honors in physics, three with honors in physics, and one with highest honors in economics.
