Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.
Women have excellent opportunities in Physics & Astronomy at Clemson. Over the past five years, the fraction of women who have been accepted, been awarded assistantships and fellowships, passed the qualifying exam, earned PhD's, and have moved to tenure track positions have all been at least as high as those for men. We have a monthly meeting of Women in Physics, organized by women faculty, to discuss issues of interest to majors, graduate students, faculty and staff.
Please include the name of faculty or staff member and an email they can be reached at for further questions.
