The Department of Physics offers programs of study leading to both the M.S. degree in physics and the Ph.D. degree in physics. Primary focus is placed on the Ph.D. program, and most students enrolled for graduate study are enrolled in that program. Students have the opportunity to perform research in state-of-the-art facilities under faculty direction. Graduates are prepared for research at the highest levels in academia, government laboratories, and corporate laboratories.
