About

The goal of the M.S. program in Physics is to provide innovative and high quality education and training opportunities to students interested in continuing their education beyond the undergraduate level. The programs aim at providing a strong foundation for further study at the Ph. D. level in Mathematics, Physics or related fields, for acquiring positions in industry, and for teaching at secondary and post-secondary institutions. Mathematics offers concentrations in pure and applied mathematics with a special emphasis in Computing Science and Statistics.  Physics has an active research program with modern on-campus experimental facilities, and with access to regional and national research facilities including the nuclear and free electron laser labs located on the nearby Duke University campus. The program strives to extend its research capabilities with strong student participation through significant and valuable contributions to science and technology.
