Resources for Physics Majors

Professor Persans' Advising Talks

Finding Your Way Through Rensselaer

"Most students enter Physics at Rensselaer with a vague notion of what physicists do and what they can do with their degree. In fact, most physics majors transition into related fields where Physics supplies a good preparation. The purpose of this talk is to help you plan your time at Rensselaer by giving examples of some of the diverse paths that other students have taken to successful careers."
