We offer two programs of study. Our doctoral program has been awarding Ph.D.s in Physics since 1899, and is currently training over 175 students in all areas of physics. Our MS in Physics-Quantum Computing (MSPQC) has been awarding degrees since 2020
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.
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.
