About

The department of Physics offers program at Missouri University of Science and Technologys leading to both the master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees. The master’s degree can be earned with either a thesis or non-thesis option.

Overview

Most physics graduate students are supported by either teaching or research assistantships, although some fellowships are available for exceptionally promising students. Most entering graduate students are supported on teaching assistantships, and teach in the introductory physics laboratory. Thereafter, they are usually supported as research assistants on external research grants.

Entering graduate students usually have a physics undergraduate degree; however inquiries from students with other technical degrees and a good mathematics background are encouraged, since the program allows minor background deficiencies to be made up.

The department's research emphasis includes both fundamental and applied studies in three areas of physics: condensed matter, solid state, and materials physics; cloud, aerosol and environmental physics; and atomic, molecular, and optical Physics. Experimental and theoretical research opportunities are available for study in each of these areas.
