How's UC Santa Barbra undergrad in term high-energy physics?

  1. Oct 15, 2015 #1
    I'm an applying high school student. I know something about the field so don't worrying talking about the subject itself just assume I know how research works. I want to know how does it feel like to be a student in UCSB physics department if you want to have high-energy particle physics as career. In addition, I also want to know the process of p.h.d application: what you do in the last year(s) of undergrad? how do you accumulate research experience in school? how do you find research group and prof.?

    Thank you.

    It has a strong program, but undergraduates really don't specialize. You might get to take one course in HEP as an undergrad.
