The Department of Physics offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Arts or Doctor of Philosophy in Physics. Details of the respective admission and program requirements will be found under the tabs at left. Both programs prepare students for careers in physics, including research and teaching, in various settings and at different levels. Research at the forefront of knowledge plays an essential role in physics education at the graduate level.
It is important that students also consult the current Bulletin of the Graduate College for updated information. Students are encouraged to consult with the physics department graduate advisor or the department chairperson when questions arise concerning any aspect of life in the physics graduate program. Any member of the physics faculty will be glad to try to answer questions, provide advice or at least steer you in the right direction to get help.
