Program Admission Requirements


  1. Prospective students, in addition to meeting the requirements for admission to The Graduate School, are required to present as a prerequisite for admission a satisfactory record of undergraduate work in physics. Normally 21 credit hours of physics course work will be required, including classical mechanics, electricity and magnetism, modern physics, quantum physics, and thermal physics, and 12 credit hours of calculus and differential equations. Students who are deficient in undergraduate work may be admitted on a conditional basis and would be allowed to take graduate courses only after fulfilling the undergraduate course deficiencies. Submission of general GRE score is strongly recommended for admission.
