The University of Cincinnati has a long and distinguished tradition of research and graduate education – it was the first institution west of the Appalachian Mountains to offer a PhD degree in physics. Today, our program is vital and growing. Our graduate students play a key role in the research and teaching missions of the Physics Department, and work closely with faculty advisors. Our program is large enough to be quite diverse, yet small enough so that every student receives individual attention. We currently have more than 60 graduate students, of whom more than 20% are women. We are an APS Bridge Program Member Institution.
