In partnership with Boston University, this highly competitive program will take Physics majors on a journey of research, working with the world’s leading physicists to explore the universe on the level of its most basic constituent particles.
Situated at the bottom of the Alps, on the border with France, Geneva is the most populous city of the French-speaking part of Switzerland. Geneva is a global city, a financial center, and a worldwide center for diplomacy and headquarter to many international organizations. It is also home for the prestigious European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Students will easily navigate the city and academic community with a basic knowledge of French.
The first six weeks of the program are dedicated to an intensive French language course and the Undergraduate Physics Seminar. When the University of Geneva (UNIGE) semester begins in mid-February, students will enroll in two UNIGE physics courses as well as a directed study at CERN.
