From state-of-the-art theater lighting to microscopes that can visualize the delicate vascular system of a fruit fly, Princeton undergraduates are getting their hands on some of the most sophisticated equipment available today. Across the arts, natural and social sciences, humanities, and engineering, Princeton offers courses that provide self-directed exploration and experimentation using facilities that on other campuses are only available to graduate students or staff researchers.

The courses featured in this video series, usually taken during junior year, enable students to conduct independent research or creative work for their senior thesis, a months-long research project required for most students as a capstone to their Princeton experience.
