About Harvard University
The Department of Physics at Harvard, with 10 Nobel Prize winners to its credit, engages in teaching and research that spans the discipline and defines its borders, and as a result is consistently one of the top-ranked physics departments in the nation.
The Department's greatest resources are the people that fill its classrooms, labs, and offices, as well as state-of-the-art facilities and an outstanding onsite Research Library. For undergraduate concentrators, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers, Harvard's Physics Department features a complete range of opportunities to engage in world-class physics from theoretical to the experimental.
Research in the Department seeks to explore and explain fundamental questions that range from understanding the origin of the universe, including string theory, cosmology, and astrophysics, to understanding the visible world of colloids and the world on an ever diminishing scale, from the mesoscale to the nanoscale, condensed matter, atomic and molecular and particle physics.
