The MS in Physics and the MS in Physics: Astrophysics offer a full range of graduate level courses and research opportunities in astronomy, biophysics, condensed matter physics, cosmology, elementary particle physics, and quantum information. Our faculty have international reputations in a broad range of subjects, and collaborations between department members and members of other departments with differing research interests are common. Close interaction between faculty and students is the norm.
As a MS student, you will hone your ability to use advanced mathematics to model, describe and analyze physical phenomena. You will deepen your understanding in fundamental areas of physics, including Classical Mechanics, Electricity, Magnetism, and Quantum Mechanics. Students who complete a master’s thesis will also carry out original research and develop valuable communication skills to present scientific ideas and results effectively, orally, and in writing, to professional colleagues.
