Welcome to Physics

The Martin A. Fisher School of Physics enjoys an international reputation for excellence in research, and is one of the highest-ranked of its size in the country. Two members of our faculty have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, and three are fellows of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The department offers rigorous training to aspiring physicists at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, with close personal attention to the individual needs of each student.

Brandeis, as a leader of research in the sciences, offers the rare combination of an internationally recognized research university in a small college 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.

We invite you to explore our website.
