The Physics PhD program and Physics: Astrophysics PhD Program offer a full range of graduate level courses and research opportunities in astronomy, biophysics, condensed matter physics, cosmology, elementary particle physics, and quantum information. The Tufts Physics faculty have international reputations in a broad range of subjects, and collaborations between department members and members of other departments with differing research interests are common.
As a student in the program, you'll collaborate closely with faculty and work with them on research and projects. You may also pursue research in related departments, such as biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, and mathematics.
As a doctoral student in Physics, you will deepen your understanding in fundamental areas of physics, including Classical Mechanics, Electricity, Magnetism, and Quantum Mechanics, as well as a selected specialized area of physics or astrophysics, including the tools and techniques of research in the field. You will carry out independent, original research and hone your ability to communicate scientific ideas and results effectively to peers.
