The Department of Physics offers the Physics, MS with concentrations in applied physics, health physics, and medical physics. Students seeking a master of science (MS) degree must apply and be admitted into one of the three concentrations. A satisfactory knowledge of a foreign language or an acceptable computer language is required. Attendance at a minimum of one-half of the regular Department of Physics seminars given during the student’s residence in the graduate program is required.
The applied physics concentration requires minimum of 34 s.h. of courses and the completion of a thesis. The health physics concentration requires a minimum of 38 s.h. of courses, and, in addition, students must complete a 10-16 week rigorous practicum in applied health physics in an industrial, university or national laboratory setting in lieu of a thesis. The medical physics concentration requires a minimum of 39 s.h. of courses that include a minimum of 6 s.h. of clinical study in lieu of a thesis.
The degree requires a minimum of 34-39 s.h. as follows:
