Undergraduate Research in Astronomy

The Department of Astronomy at the University of Virginia has a long history of undergraduate involvement in research. The undergraduate degree in Astronomy has been in existence since the 1880’s. Currently, all of our undergraduate majors and some of our minors take a tutorial course (ASTR 4993) during which they receive individual introductions to current theoretical and observational research topics of interest to the faculty. In addition, all of our Astronomy and joint Astronomy-Physics majors write a Senior Thesis (ASTR 4998) which provides an immersion into the research experience. Below is a list of our recent majors, along with their thesis topic and advisor. Also listed are any publications resulting from their thesis work, as well as other publications from their undergraduate careers.
