Program description


Physics originated in antiquity as the study of natural philosophy. As such, it attempts to describe the universe within the context of both physical laws and the fundamental particles of nature. The broad scope of physics runs from the microscopic nuclear structure and that of the elementary particles themselves to the macroscopic, the galaxy and evolution of the universe as a whole. Today the subject is generally divided into broad areas such as condensed matter, nuclear, elementary particles, astrophysics, etc. The department maintains competence in most major branches of physics and offers instruction in these areas at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, it has a strong interest and involvement in science education.

Admission requirements

Program Specific Admission Requirements

Applicants for graduate study in physics or astrophysics should have an undergraduate preparation in physics and mathematics equivalent to that specified for a physics major. They must submit their GRE scores for the verbal aptitude, the quantitative aptitude, analytical aptitude, and the advanced physics portion of the GRE.
