Department of Physics & Astronomy

New Students


Welcome to San Francisco State! There is a lot to do here, and we hope that you enjoy yourself. Be sure to check the requirements listings for undergraduate and graduate students. If you're a graduate student, also be sure to check out the Graduate Advisor's website.

Interested in teaching high school or middle school? Please contact Adrienne Cool.

      You should look at the postings from the research programs to find out what is happening in the department. Also, be sure to check our listings of colloquia and other announcements of ongoing events. For an idea of what it's like to be a student here, we suggest that you go the Physics and Astronomy People page and look at the home pages of some of our students.


Maybe you are wondering if one of our degrees will get you a job! Take a look at our alumni page.
