The Department of Physics offers a Master of Science degree that provides advanced training in core areas of fundamental physics and exposure to the application of physics in areas of current research. This program is suitable as both a means for professional development and preparation for further graduate study. Students who wish to complete only the MS degree are welcomed, and will find that the learning environment will allow them to broaden their professional understanding by exploring current topics and trends of physics in an interdisciplinary setting. Students who intend to pursue the Physics PhD degree should apply directly to that program. The requirements for the Physics PhD include the coursework required for the MS degree, thus PhD students can earn the MS degree during their PhD study. Students should apply to the program that best aligns with their goals. MS students who wish to continue study toward the PhD degree must apply for the PhD program on a competitive basis. Satisfactory completion of a minimum of 45.0 credits of approved physics courses is required. Core courses (among the 30.0 credits listed below) must be passed with a grade of B or higher and the student must maintain a cumulative GPA average for all courses of at least 3.00.
