The Tufts Institute of Cosmology offers unique opportunities for aspiring physicists. On the one hand, the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Tufts offers the personal attention and interaction of a close-knit, medium-sized department. Yet with several active professorial faculty and a strong visiting scientist program, the Institute of Cosmology provides a focus on cosmology that exceeds that of much larger institutions. Thus, it should be no surprise that the Institute of Cosmology has an excellent record of placing its graduates in academic positions (scroll below for a sample of Institute alumni).

Graduate students at the Institute of Cosmology are generally supported with research or teaching assistantships. For information about the graduate degree completion requirements, consult the Departmental guide.
