The graduate program in physics is designed to equip students with a broad understanding of major fields of physics and to train them to carry out independent, original research. This objective is to be attained by formal course work and supervised research projects. As the number of students who are accepted is limited, a close contact between students and faculty is maintained, permitting close supervision and guidance of each student. Advanced degrees will be granted upon evidence of the student's knowledge, understanding, and proficiency in classical and modern physics. The satisfactory completion of advanced courses will constitute partial fulfillment of these requirements. Research upon which theses may be based, with residence at Brandeis, may be carried out in the following areas: 1. Theoretical Physics Quantum theory of fields; relativity; super gravity; string theory; condensed matter theory; statistical mechanics; biological physics. 2. Experimental Physics High-energy experimental physics; condensed matter physics; radio astronomy; and biological physics. Every graduate teaching fellow (TF) is supervised by a member of the faculty, who serves as a mentor to improve the quality of the TF's teaching. In recognition of this objective, each year the physics department awards the David Falkoff Prize to an outstanding teaching fellow. An additional goal of the department is to enable graduate students to be able to present their research findings in a clear and effective manner. Each spring the department organizes the Stephan Berko Symposium, where students give short presentations of their research. These talks are prepared with the assistance of faculty research advisers. The best graduate student research project and the best undergraduate research project are recognized with Stephan Berko Prizes. Learning Goals Most of our graduates go on to graduate school, while some go into high-tech employment, medical school, or other professional studies. Our students have an excellent record of entering the best graduate programs.

Characterized by academic excellence since its founding in 1948, Brandeis is one of the youngest private research universities, as well as the only nonsectarian Jewish-sponsored college or university in the country.Named for the late Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis of the U.S. Supreme Court, Brandeis University combines the faculty and resources of a world-class research institution with the intimacy and personal attention of a small liberal arts college. For students, that means unsurpassed access--both in and out of the classroom--to a faculty renowned for groundbreaking research, scholarship, and artistic output. At Brandeis, professors bring newly-minted knowledge straight from the field or lab to the graduate and undergraduate classrooms.Brandeis supports an innovative and exciting program of learning that emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach to knowledge and the solution of real-life problems. Undergraduates, from the very first year, enjoy leadership positions and research opportunities typically available only to upperclass and graduate students.Located in Waltham, Massachusetts, on 235 attractive suburban acres, Brandeis is in an ideal location just nine miles west of Boston.Brandeis is ranked in the top tier of the nation's universities. Our graduates depart to pursue careers in a wide array of fields, and advanced studies in the nation's leading graduate and professional schools.
