Why study Physics?

The physics graduate program emphasizes cutting edge research and education, resulting in orginal published work, and preparing our students for university, national lab, or industrial/corporate employment. A full range of courses are offered, including many research level advance courses. Physics faculty work closely with graduate students, mentoring them in a variety of areas, including condensed matter, high energy, and particle physics, astrophysics, physics education, etc. Students also benefit from weekly seminars, colloquia, group meetings and collaborations with other students and postdocs in large externally funded research groups.

Admission Requirements

The minimum required GPA for graduate study is 3.0. Applicants should take the General GRE, and are strongly encouraged to take the Physics GRE subject area test for international applicants. Applicants without Physics GRE subject area test scores must provide other evidence of outstanding achievement and promise. There are no minimum required GRE scores for admission. Instead, we consider your scores, overall record, and letters of recommendation to make the admission decision. 

Visit the Physics website or contact the program directly for information about application requirements or to inquire about materials that need to be submitted when applying to this program.
