Anyone know of an online source that provides rankings for graduate physics programs?
US News (a magazine in the US) does I think.
Take a look at the second post in this thread. The data is a couple of years old, but it should tell you where to look for the rankings. :)
In my opinion, one needs to look beyond these rankings [over all fields in physics] and consider something more relevant: the strength of various departments in your intended field of study.
Yes, I certainly agree. But I've gotten into a couple different graduate programs, both of which offer some excellent research opportunities, and I'm just interested in how they both rank. It won't be a major factor in which school I decide to attend.
