We offer three types of graduate degrees in physics. Please view a detailed description of each program below.

#### Performance Standards

Graduate students in good standing in physics must maintain a cumulative average of 3.0. A grade of C is considered a minimum passing grade. Candidates whose average is below 3.0 after 12 hours of graduate work will be placed on probationary status; they will be removed from this status when the average of 3.0 is earned. Students whose average is below a 3.0 after 18 hours of graduate work may be asked to withdraw from the program.

#### M.S. in Physics

The Master of Science program, leading to the M.S. degree, gives the student a broad base of fundamental theory and concentrated study in a particular area of specialization. This program is designed for the student who either desires a career in industry or government, or wants to pursue further graduate study. Each student does experimental or theoretical research in an area of interest and writes a thesis.
