Where Our Students Go

Approximately 75% of our students continue on to graduate schools in physics or related fields. All of these students have been fully supported financially by either teaching or research assistantships, or by nationally competitive fellowships. Over the years Drew physics students have been awarded NSF Graduate Fellowships, a National Physical Science Consortium Fellowship, an AT&T Bell Laboratories Graduate Fellowship for Women, and a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship. Some students choose professional programs such as law, medicine, or education. And others look to direct employment after graduation in a wide array of job opportunities.
