Is Duke or Princeton a better education for a physics major? What about ecology or any major involving the environment?
Both schools will get you where you want to go. That said, Princeton has the stronger program in physics, and Duke has an edge in ecology and environmental science and policy.
Note that you can’t double major at Princeton. Environmental studies, biophysics, and engineering physics are offered as a certificate; ecology & evolutionary biology is not.
Well! That’s something Princeton never mentioned! I’ll keep that in mind
