Graduate Studies

The University of Minnesota School of Physics and Astronomy has a robust and active program that has around 180 graduate students. Graduate students work closely with their faculty advisors to support the School's teaching and research projects, including collaborations with CERN, LIGO, and the Brookhaven National Laboratory, to name a few.

Virtually all of our Graduate students are funded through fellowships, teaching assistant, and research assistant positions.
