The Graduate Physics program is intended to serve the needs of students who wish to enhance their preparation for a doctoral degree in physics or applied science, students who wish to obtain a terminal masters degree in order to work in a physics or engineering related industry, and students who wish to enhance their teaching of physics at the secondary level. To fulfill these purposes, the department offers a degree program: Master of Science in Physics.

The M.S. in Physics program is built around a core of five graduate courses and a selection of applied courses in the faculty's areas of expertise that are designed to tie into current areas of research and interest within both academia and industry.
