Physics Graduate Program Header

Welcome to the physics and astronomy community at Montana State University!

Every year, we look forward to welcoming prospective graduate students to our department to give them an opportunity to learn more about us and show you what we have to offer.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are forced to hold this event entirely virtually. And because it is virtual, the events will be more limited to focus on answering your questions, getting you focused information about research opportunities, and putting you into contact with current graduate students so that you can learn about the program from your future peers and colleagues.  

We will miss having you here in person, but we are excited to welcome you virtually and give you the opportunity to learn more about us!  

Below, you will find the agenda for our Virtual Visit Day as well as additional videos to learn more about beautiful Bozeman, Montana.
