Applied Physics, M.S.

Master of Science in Applied Physics

The Master of Science in Applied Physics will be offered only on the Brooklyn Campus and the courses will be offered primarily in the evening. Admitted students will be expected to have a BS in physics, applied physics, or a closely-related discipline and to make up any deficiencies before commencing graduate studies. Letters of recommendation, GRE and TOEFL scores, and application letters will be considered in the admission process.

Degree Requirements

Completion of the Master of Science in Applied Physics requires a minimum of 30 semester credits. Students are required to take 6 credits of basic courses (a 3-credit course in quantum mechanics and two semesters of graduate seminar) with the balance of the necessary credits earned in elective physics courses. The elective courses may include a 6-credit research project or a 9-credit thesis in physics. Choice of a project or thesis option and of elective courses should be made with the approval of the graduate adviser. As many as 9 credits of physics courses taken elsewhere may be accepted towards the degree, with the approval of the graduate adviser. No comprehensive examination is required for the master’s degree in applied physics.
