About the Master's Program

Physics is a crucial cornerstone of interdisciplinary science training. In particular, physics develops and enhances students' analytical skills and problem-solving capability, leaving them versatile and adaptable for working in a wide range of fields, including fundamental science, engineering and even finance. The Master of Arts in Physics is designed to help graduate students obtain a solid understanding of fundamental science and improve their general problem-solving capabilities, enhancing their ability to pursue their particular interests and career goals. Students from the program will either enter the workforce or pursue a doctoral degree in Physics or another scientific discipline.

The Department of Physics is committed to the promotion of diversity within the culture of scientific inquiry. We especially encourage the application of women and under-represented minorities to our graduate and undergraduate programs, as well as for faculty and staff openings.
