UC Davis Today
Universal discoveries: Graduate studies in physics
The UC Davis physics program is a recognized world leader in many areas of theoretical and experimental research. Our graduate students are highly motivated, working with dedicated faculty in ultra-contemporary facilities on some of the most fundamental questions of the universe. The program offers three core areas of study — condensed matter, high-energy physics and cosmology — with additional offerings in nuclear physics, high-energy astrophysics, computational science and physics education.
With a focus on discovery, UC Davis is educating future physicists and generating scientific knowledge for the advancement of the state, nation and world.
