Graduate Studies Programs

The Department of Physics and Astronomy receives information about graduate school programs from various schools throughout the year. We will post those here. Please note that this is not an endorsement of any particular program. If you are interested in a program you see listed here, please talk to your advisor about whether or not it would be a good fit for your goals.

Choosing a Graduate Program

GradSchoolShopper (GSS) is a resource compiled and developed by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) which also supports the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma (SPS). GSS is the most complete directory of graduate programs in the physical sciences. The website allows students to create profiles and perform searches based on a broad range of criteria to find programs that best suit their needs.

Resources for Applying to andFunding Graduate Programs

The American Physical Society has online resources for students considering graduate work in physics.

The National Science Foundation offers resources for graduate school as well.
