Physics and Astronomy majors! Thinking about grad school?

The American Institute of Physics’ (AIP) newly enhanced and updated GradschoolShopper website is a comprehensive one-stop resource for researching graduate programs in physics, astronomy, and related fields. The site is designed to provide easy access to the most thorough, specific, relevant, up-to-date, and authoritative information on graduate programs and research in physics and related fields.The site presents exhaustive profiles of the great majority of U.S. physics and astronomy doctoral programs and many master’s degree programs in the United States. The physics-related department profiles include fields such as nuclear engineering, electrical engineering, chemical physics, material science, meteorology, geophysics, medical physics, oceanography, and acoustics. The online department profiles now display general information such as degree requirements, admissions, tuition costs, financial aid, and housing; and more specific information, including specialties for degree programs, department research specialties, faculty information and specialties, notable alumni, special equipment, facilities or programs, research funding, department culture, and more.

AIP Publishing

This is a great resource for finding different programs. We also have their print publication, Graduate Programs in Physics, Astronomy and Related Fields (QC30 .A512 2011), in Kresge stacks and the latest copy in reference. For more information about applying to graduate schools, please see the department’s webpage on Beyond the Undergrad Degree.
