Program Description:

The Martin A. Fisher School of Physics at Brandeis enjoys an international reputation for excellence in research, and is one of the highest-ranked of its size in the country.

Brandeis University, as a leader of research in the sciences, offers the rare combination of an internationally recognized research university in a medium-sized setting. This atmosphere promotes close interactions with prestigious faculty; collaboration among faculty and students; and, given our location just outside of Boston, a plethora of opportunities in the sciences. You will take part in advanced research in a number of cutting-edge fields, from biophysics to particle physics, microfluidics to radio astronomy, and cosmology to string theory.
