The Physics and Astronomy Department offers the Master of Science Degree in Physics. The degree may include coursework in physics, astronomy and astrophysics, and thesis work in any of the fields represented by our research faculty. The goal of the master's degree is to provide a solid, in-depth background in theory and experiment. This prepares students for

This program combines advanced education in core physics topics with additional advanced courses, laboratory and computer work, and more concentrated work in a specialty such as solid-state physics, quantum optics, astrophysics, or computational physics. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in research with one of our faculty members.
