Welcome to the Physics Department! Physics, or “natural philosophy” as it was originally known, has been part of Brown’s curriculum since the 18th century, and our department has a distinguished history of teaching and research. Our current roster of 27 full-time faculty members includes a Nobel Prize winner and numerous recipients of other prestigious awards and honors. Faculty members engage in research in astrophysics and cosmology, high energy, condensed matter and biological physics that is collaborative, interdisciplinary and international in its scope.

We offer undergraduates a comprehensive experience that includes many opportunities to work directly with cutting-edge researchers who are also dedicated classroom instructors. Our graduate program incorporates strong faculty and peer mentoring for our approximately 100 graduate students.

Please explore this site to learn more about our exciting research initiatives and what Brown Physics can offer you.
