Graduate Programs

The Department of Physics offers the opportunity for students to pursue a Ph.D. in many areas of experimental and theoretical physics. Entering students typically have undergraduate degrees in physics or related fields, and are drawn from among the most talented students around the world. The department does not offer a terminal master's program. Information for applying to our Ph.D. program can be found here: How to Apply.

Master of Science in the Physical Sciences

While the Department of Physics does not offer a terminal master's program, students can specialize in physics in the master's program offered by the Physical Sciences Division (MS-PSD). Through this MS-PSD program, the department also participates in a small bridge to Ph.D. effort known as the Pathway Scholars Program. Follow the links for more information.

Graduate Student at Large

Well-prepared students who are simply interested in taking graduate courses can pursue this option via the Graduate Student at Large program offered by the Graham School of Continuing Liberal and Professional Studies.
