The University of Illinois Chicago offers a fully funded Master’s in Physics. Faculty members are currently conducting research and directing doctoral candidates in both experimental and theoretical topics in the major research areas of atomic, biological, condensed matter, materials, high-energy, nuclear, laser, and molecular physics. Almost all of our incoming graduate students will be offered a tuition waiver and a Teaching Assistantship. All Physics Graduate students at UIC hold 9-month academic year appointments as a Teaching Assistant, Research Assistant, or some combination throughout the duration of their graduate work. Over the summers, graduate students are typically on a Research Assistantship.
