Graduate students working and mingling at Tate Hall


Welcome to the School of Physics and Astronomy
at the University of Minnesota.

Our undergraduate and graduate programs have been divided into two, Physics and Astronomy, in order to best support students for the fields they are interested in. These programs are managed by the School of Physics and Astronomy and the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics (housed within the School). Additionally students have the opportunity to take classes from faculty in the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute, also housed within the School.
