The thesis based Physics program of Hampton University is designed to provide graduate education for those persons who seek the master's as the terminal degree or seek to pursue the master's en-route to a doctoral degree in physics.


The applicant to the Physics program of Hampton University is expected to have a baccalaureate degree in physics, engineering, a related field, or equivalent experience. Students are required to complete a minimum of 18 hours of required courses, nine (9) hours of approved electives and three (3) hours of thesis research. Students prepare and defend a Master's thesis in partial fulfillment of requirements for graduation from the program. The admission and completion requirements are the same as those of the Graduate College.


Depending on the background of the incoming student, the Medical Physics concentration program is a 2-3 year program consisting of courses, clinical "rotations", and hands-on research. A grade of "B" or better is required for all core courses. There is a prerequisite interview for all clinical rotations. The program was designed to conform to guidelines established by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Educations Programs (CAMPEP), and prepare students for eventual certification by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) in Radiological Physics or one or more of its many specialty fields, including Medical Nuclear Physics, Diagnostic Radiological Physics, and Therapeutic Radiological Physics. Prerequisite undergraduate courses include quantum mechanics, electricity and magnetism, mechanics, anatomy and physiology. Applications will be reviewed individually, and additional courses to the basic program may be suggested.
