The CU PER group is one of the largest PER groups in the world, comprising many faculty, post-doctoral researchers, staff, and student members. As a PER graduate student, you will be a member of a supportive and welcoming community, and be advised and mentored by multiple faculty members with wide ranging PER expertise. Current and past students have completed a graduate degree in PER through three different avenues: Department of Physics, ATLAS Institute, and the School of Education. The CU PER group is well established in the physics department and connected to departments all over campus.
