The University of Minnesota School of Physics and Astronomy has a robust and active program that graduates about 50 students annually. Core courses are taught to over 4000 students annually by our world renowned faculty in larger lecture courses and small discussion and laboratory sections. Students in these sections are able to connect with their faculty and graduate assistants one-on-one, giving them the experience they would receive at a smaller college with the resources of a large, research based institution.
Research opportunities exist within the school that prepare our students for outside internships and moving forward with their academic career. Graduates of our program may choose to go on to graduate school or enter the job market equally prepared for what the world may bring.
