Life After Lycoming

More than half of all astronomy and physics majors continue their education at graduate schools. Graduates from Lycoming have been accepted into programs across the country, including Penn State University, Tufts University, the University of Virginia, George Mason University, George Washington University, Colorado State University, and the Florida Institute of Technology.

Those astronomy and physics students who decide to enter the workforce upon graduation find employment relating to their major ranging from teaching to industrial research to meteorology to positions in government labs.
