GradSchoolShopper.com gets a new home page

The site has been redesigned to bring to the surface the new content, features and functions developed in the past year.

GradSchoolShopper.com is a product of the American Institute of Physics (AIP), which has been collaborating with physics graduate programs and publishing the annual directory of Graduate Programs in Physics, Astronomy, and Related Fields for 48 years, since 1965. This is the only directory for physical sciences,  engineering and allied fields that, in print and online, is updated every year with information provided by each department. You should be able to find the most comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date information here.

We have added more options to the Advanced Search form, but have simplified the search options in the home page, so as to give room for exposing more content on the site. The customized Google search option in the upper right corner gives you the opportunity to do a free text search.

To help you navigate through the many department profiles, we are listing some of the browsing and ranking options in the home page.

The news section informs you of the new content, features or functions of the site, as well as the articles that help you utilize the site and explore the various programs.

The new home page also offers some advice articles and podcast interviews in students.gradschoolshopper.com, a student-oriented resource site.

Many students we talked to, during our conference exhibits, campus tours, and online surveys, have expressed that they would like to see more statistical reports on the trends in the physics education and employment as well as job opportunities at various levels. So we are including these two new sections in the home page, with content from SPS Jobs and AIP Statistical Research Reports, two services offered by the AIP Physics Resources Center.

We encourage you to explore the Featured Programs, which appear on the home page as well as all the other pages. These programs often offer paragraphs on “Why Choose Us” and are inviting more qualified applicants.

Advice to Students

Visit the campus you’re considering and talk to current graduate students there. You want to get a real sense of what their life is like and hear their honest feedback about the school. — Gary White, director of the Society of Physics Students and Sigma Pi Sigma, Podcast Episode #3
