A bachelor's or master's degree in engineering, mathematics, or one of the physical sciences is required for admission.
M.S. Program in Applied Physics
The program of study leading to the degree of master of science, while emphasizing continued work in basic physics, permits many options in several applied physics specialties. The program may be considered simply as additional education in areas beyond the bachelor's level, or as preparatory to doctoral studies in the applied physics fields of plasma physics, laser physics, solid-state physics, and applied mathematics. Specific course requirements for the master's degree are determined in consultation with the program adviser.
