Graduate Studies in Physics

The Department of Physics offers Masters of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) graduate degree programs.

Our faculty members are currently conducting research and directing doctoral candidates in both experimental and theoretical topics in the major research areas of atomic, biological, condensed matter, materials, high-energy, nuclear, laser and molecular physics.

Students accepted into our PhD program are typically supported with either a Teaching Assistantship, Research Assistantship or a combination of both throughout their entire time in the department.

Graduates of our MS and PhD programs have gone on to a broad range of extremely successful careers around the world that span education, academia, national labs, and private industry.
