UH physics faculty members serve on national peer-review panels to evaluate competitive research grants and edit prestigious scientific journals. Students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty interact to create a research-intensive atmosphere.
We are comitted to building and maintaining an inclusive environment where diversity is valued so that all may take part in our creative academic atmosphere and contribute to the next chapters of our long and rich history.
The University of Utah's Department of Physics & Astronomy is committed to pursuing key science questions within an inclusive academic community, to training and diversifying the next generation of researchers, educators, and tech workforce leaders.
The University of Connecticut is consistently ranked the Number 1 Public University in New England. The University’s first Physical Review article was published in 1899, and the first physics course was taught in 1918.
The Physics Department is made up of twenty-three faculty members, who conduct research in the areas of condensed matter (theory and experiment), particle physics (theory and experiment), biophysics, and astrophysics and cosmology.
Our professors advise and collaborate with our graduate students, offering the personal attention necessary for students to reach their fullest potential. Physics graduate students have landed positions at highly-prestigious organizations.
