Michael Johnson Science Seminar Series

Michael Johnson Science Seminars


The Michael Johnson Seminar Series is named after one of our physics professors who passed in 2007. Our seminar series was born out of a celebration of his career at Maryville.

The seminars are not discipline-specific. They are delivered to the Maryville community, coupled to our senior capstone course where our students learn the basics of giving a scientific talk and how to present science.
