Studying abroad is compatible with majoring in physics, but students need to plan carefully in order to be able to spend a semester or year abroad. The Physics Department provides information about studying abroad as a physics major on its website.
If you are interested in majoring in physics and spending a year/semester abroad, talk to the physics departmental representative as soon as you get to Princeton as a freshman.
PHY majors can study abroad through a variety of programs. Below are some suggestions from OIP's study abroad advisers:
