Master of Science in Applied Physics - Physics
Master of Science in Applied Physics
To be awarded the Master of Science in Applied Physics degree, a student must complete a program that includes at least 32 graduate credit hours in physics, mathematics, and engineering; 20 credit hours must be at the 4000-level. Of the 32 total graduate credit hours, at least 20 must be physics courses, including 12 at the 4000 level.
The program will include at least one graduate level course in each of the following areas: mechanics, electromagnetism, and quantum physics. In addition, a student's program must include an area of concentration containing a four-course sequence of graduate-level courses, at least two at the 4000 level, in an area related to applied physics and approved by the Chairman of the Department of Physics. Students will demonstrate additional breadth by taking at least one 4000-level physics course outside their concentration area.
Programs leading to the Master of Science in Applied Physics degree must include a thesis advised or co-advised by a member of the Physics Department, and approved by the Chairman of the Department of Physics.
