M.S. Degree Program
of Physics offers a Master of Science degree which allows students
to pursue either a non-terminal program focused on preparation
for doctoral candidacy at major universities or a terminal degree
program emphasizing computational/applied physics. Entering students
have the opportunity to make up for any lack of adequate undergraduate
preparation by enrolling in appropriate upper-level undergraduate
courses offered by the Department.
In addition to general requirements of the School of Arts and Sciences, candidates must fulfill the following prerequisites:
Programs of Study
offers two distinct options leading to the Master of Science
(M.S.) degree: One in pure physics and one in applied physics.
The M.S. degree program in pure physics provides the basic course
work and research skills necessary for persons who might pursue
a Ph.D. degree in physics. The M.S. degree program in applied
physics equips individuals with tools and techniques necessary
for solving applied physical problems arising in business, government
The basic core courses for the Master of Science in physics consist of the following: PHY 501, 503, 515-516, 520, 531-532, 601-602, 603-604. Students are advised to take at least one (1) course in computer science.
