The Department of Physics offers two programs of
graduate study leading either to the Master of Science or to the
Master of Science in Teaching degrees.
The program leading to the Master of Science degree is a research
master's program with a required thesis and prepares graduates for
employment in private or government laboratories or for further graduate
work. The Master of Science in Teaching program is designed
to enable high school physics teachers to upgrade their knowledge of physics
by providing a thorough treatment of those areas of physics that form the
basis of our modern knowledge.
In addition to these degree programs, the Selected Graduate Studies format
may be used to develop an individual interdisciplinary course of study.
It has been used, for example, to provide an electro-optics option through a
combination of engineering and physics courses.
