Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Yale Graduate Physics program. We are excited for you to learn more about what the Physics Ph.D. program at Yale has to offer.
Yale’s science majors are welcomed into a world of internationally respected faculty who work at the frontiers of contemporary research. As part of Yale’s longstanding tradition, science programs are distinguished by the emphasis placed on undergraduate education: classes are small and the faculty is easily accessible to undergraduates. Science departments actively encourage undergraduates to participate in research alongside faculty or in their own independent research projects, in some cases as early as the freshmen year. Consequently, undergraduates often interact with faculty more as colleagues than as students.
