Graduate Programs

The Department of Physics and Astronomy offers both master's and doctoral programs with a full range of graduate-level courses and research opportunities in astronomy, biophysics, condensed matter physics, cosmology, elementary particle physics, and quantum information. In addition to a Physics track and an Astrophysics track, the department offers a Chemical Physics track and a Physics Education track. Our students also pursue research in related departments, such as biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, and mathematics.

The members of our 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. Close interaction between faculty and students is the norm.

Last, but not least, Tufts and its close proximity to Boston offers incredible opportunities for cultural, gastronomical, and extra-curricular activities. See what some of our alumni have to say about their experiences!
