THE CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AND THE CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK

The City College Physics Department is the major participant in the City University of New York's (CUNY)  Ph.D. program in Physics.  Applications to the Ph.D. program in Physics are made through the CUNY Graduate Center's Admissions Office.  First-year Ph.D. students take courses at the Graduate Center while learning about Ph.D. Physics programs at the CUNY campuses.  Upon securing a mentor, at the beginning of the second year, the student transfers to the mentor's campus.  

City College Physics Mentors

City College offers extensive research facilities for experimental and theoretical research.  In addition, Ph.D. students gain experience as teaching assistants, as research presenters, and as participants in conferences and on committees.
