A total of 54 students graduated with credentials in physics from physics schools in Stony Brook in 2010. Tuition in 2009 at Stony Brook's physics schools was $18,770 per year for instate students and $26,670 per year for out of state students.
You should also anticipate spending about $900 for physics related books and supplies every year. And if you live on campus, you will face an additional expense of $9,590 per year, on average, for room and board at Stony Brook-based physics schools. Students who live at home can cut this cost down to approximately $14,148.
If you plan on staying in Stony Brook after graduating from physics school, you should know that job prospects for physicists in Stony Brook, which is the most popular physics profession, are not very good. In 2010, there were 630 physicists in New York. Of these physicists, 100 were working in the greater Stony Brook area. The number of physicists in Stony Brook is expected to increase by 6% by the year 2018. This anticipated change is slower than the projected nationwide trend for physicists.
