About this Program
Our program offers exceptional opportunities for starting research projects right away. See our faculty research interests on our website. Some projects can be made very interdisciplinary and we offer the flexibility to design a degree plan around your career goals. In our program, you will have:
- Early opportunities for hands-on research
- Research tailored to your career goals
- Small faculty-to-student ratio
About half our students continue to a Ph.D. program in physics, the other half take their physics experience to industry or an advanced degree in another science or engineering field.
