The 2009 Graduate Programs in Physics, Astronomy, and Related Fields provides information on graduate programs in North America. This is the thirty-third annual edition.
The great majority of U.S. physics and astronomy doctoral programs and most master's programs in both fields are featured. A substantial number of physics-related fields are listed, including nuclear engineering, electrical engineering, chemical physics, materials science, meteorology, geophysics, medical physics, oceanography, and acoustics departments. The astronomy-related fields, such as astrophysics, atmospheric, space physics, cosmic rays, and others, are covered as well.
