From the Dean
"As dean, I am strongly committed to the goals of internationalization, diversity and inclusivity. Slightly over 40 percent of our graduate students are international students, representing over 100 countries. At Binghamton, we are not simply satisfied that our students feel welcome; our goal is that all students know, feel and proclaim with confidence that Binghamton is where they belong. To this end, we foster acculturation for domestic and international students as we transform Binghamton into a preferred destination for international education. We help make the transition to Binghamton easy by providing transportation for new and returning graduate students from JFK to Binghamton. Our student ambassador program will pair returning graduate students with incoming graduate students to facilitate a stress-free relocation."
Graduate students in the Department of Physics develop solid skills in research through the Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree programs. The MS program offers advanced study for students who seek employment in applied physics, research development or placement into a doctoral program. The PhD program enables students to lead efforts in academia and industry within the fields of condensed matter physics, applied physics and materials science. Students in the Department of Physics have access to excellent facilities, including our Nanofabrication Laboratory, a multi-user facility that supports nano-scale research. Most master's students pursue doctoral positions after graduation, while many alumni work with semiconductors, packaging and electronics. Alumni also serve in both government and private industry roles.
The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree program aims to prepare well-educated, culturally competent and skillful public health professionals. With a focus on healthy communities and populations both local and global, the program educates students who can integrate the knowledge and values of public health into careers in a variety of fields. Students in the program examine public health needs and apply empirical methods to promote and protect the health of individuals, communities and populations. The program boasts a diverse faculty who work closely with students as teachers, advisors and mentors. Students who graduate with an MPH degree find employment in a variety of public health departments, as well as insurance and pharmaceutical companies. Top employers of MPH graduates include hospitals, outpatient care centers, community health programs and more.
