Physics, Astronomy Track, Ph.D.

Additional Requirements

Both the Physics & Astronomy Department and the University have formal requirements for completion of the Ph.D. Graduate students are responsible for being familiar with and completing both of these sets of requirements. At this time, the department admits students to two degree programs: the Ph.D. in physics and the Master’s of Science in Physics with Emphasis on Teaching. Students in the physics Ph.D. program may choose to specialize either in physics (physics-track) or astronomy (astronomy-track). Although the degree requirements are very similar, this choice will determine which set of physics core courses are required, which research advisor you may elect to work with, and what type of research your dissertation will involve.
