Master of Science Program in Physics
All candidates for the M.S. degree must complete 32 points of credit, at least 24 in residence at the Graduate School and at least 20 in the Department of Physics, and achieve a grade point average (GPA) of B (3.0) or better. They are further required to pass at least five of the following seven courses: Dynamics, PHYS-GA 2001, Statistical Mechanics, PHYS-GA 2002, Electromagnetism, PHYS-GA 2005, Computational Physics, PHYS-GA 2000, Quantum Mechanics I, PHYS-GA 2011, Quantum Mechanics II, PHYS-GA 2012, Experimental Physics, PHYS-GA 2075. M.S. candidates are permitted to take at most two courses outside the department, with permission of the Director of Graduate Studies.
Doctor of Philosophy Program in Physics
Applicants considered for admission have usually completed the equivalent of an undergraduate major in physics and maintained an average of at least B or better in physics and in mathematics. Calculus and ordinary differential equations are prerequisite to all courses. Special consideration is given to applicants with an undergraduate major in mathematics, engineering, or another science. Such students ordinarily take remedial work to make up undergraduate deficiencies in physics before they proceed in the regular degree program.
