We use facilities located on the campus at UCR as well as at major national and international laboratories. As UC Riverside has rapidly expanded, we have taken advantage of this opportunity to grow into an elite physics department while maintaining our supportive mentoring tradition. The graduate program is a top priority of the campus.
Recent graduates of the doctoral program in sociology at UCR have had success in attaining academic positions following completion of the PhD. Recent PhDs have also accepted tenure-track positions at Rutgers University, the University of British Columbia, Virginia Tech University, as well as several comprehensive universities.
