All graduate students must declare a specialization. In PHAS, the following specializations are offered:
- Physics (includes quantum optics, isotope science, complexity science, general relativity, environmental physics)
- MR Imaging
- Space Physics
- Radiation Oncology Physics1,2
These specializations usually but not necessarily follow the research group that you join. The physics specialization includes all other areas of research (quantum optics, isotope science, complexity science, general relativity, and environmental physics).
- The PhD program is only offered as a thesis-based program.
All graduate students are expected to perform independent research (under the guidance of a departmental faculty member) as a core part of their degree requirements. To find out more about the research going on in the department, please visit the Research page. See the Directory of People for a list of faculty with links to their homepages.
Funding for graduate students generally comes from a combination of teaching assistantships, research assistantships (funding from your supervisor), and scholarships. Also find out information about tuition and fees.
The Department of Physics and Astronomy has graduate oversight committees to ensure that students are satisfied with their programs and making progross with their work.
If you have any further questions about the graduate programs, the application process or program requirements, please contact the graduate program coordinator.
