Master of Science in Applied Physics
The Master of Science in Applied Physics has both a thesis and a non-thesis option. For the thesis option, students must earn at least 24 hours of course work in addition to the 6 thesis credit hours. For the non-thesis option, 33 hours of course work are required. For both options, the graduate work must include a minimum of 18 hours of physics.
Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Sciences
Physics-based students enrolling in the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Engineering and Applied Science must have a Masters degree from an accredited college or university in engineering, physics, mathematics, geophysics, computer science, or other closely related field, or be willing to complete course work required in the existing Masters' programs in the Department of Physics while pursuing the degree.
