About

Physics and astronomy attempt to understand and describe how and why the physical universe behaves as it does. Although remarkably simple, physics laws apply to a very wide range of sometimes beautiful and bizarre phenomena, as well as to the past and future of the universe.

Overview

The Tufts University Department of Physics and Astronomy offers programs of study leading to M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics and astronomy. Physics graduate students may also pursue research in related departments, such as electrical engineering.

Programme Structure

Courses Include:

  • Introductory to Physics II w/Lab
  • General Physics I w/Lab
  • General Physics II w/Lab
  • Biophysics

Funding

Financial aid is available in the form of tuition scholarships, teaching and research assistantships, and fellowships. The level of financial support is competitive with that offered by comparable departments in the Boston area. Entering students are most frequently supported by a teaching assistantship, combined with a tuition scholarship. Teaching assistants commonly lead undergraduate laboratory sections and grade homework assignments; more experienced students sometimes conduct recitation sections.

Research assistantships are provided by individual research groups to students who have begun to participate in their research programs. The department also has a small number of fellowships to award to especially outstanding students in their later years of graduate study.

Summer support in the form of research or teaching assistantships is available for a limited number of students.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
