Program description

The Master of Science degree may be taken in Physics or Radiological Science and Protection (health physics or in the Medical Physics option) or in the applied physics option in Optical sciences. Course requirements for the M.S. program consist of a total of 30 credits, including work on a thesis or project. The M.S. may serve as a basis for further study toward a Ph.D. degree. Students are expected to complete the M.S. program in two years.
