Post Baccalaureate Program in Astronomy and Physics

Click Here to Learn More and Apply! 

Academic Level:

The Departments of Physics and Astrophysical Sciences (Astronomy) at Princeton University have a two-year post-baccalaureate program. This program is designed to increase the diversity of candidates who aim to enter graduate school, at Princeton or elsewhere, and would benefit from an additional two years of post-baccalaureate research and class work before beginning graduate school. We especially encourage historically underrepresented groups in physics and astronomy to apply. Students will receive the same support as a first year graduate student. There is no application fee.

Application Deadline: 4/5/2019
