The Graduate Program
The department has developed a flexible program that provides a broad, advanced education and at the same time gives students the opportunity to focus on their specialized interests. This program consists of graduate courses, apprenticeship in research, teaching experience, and thesis research.
Entering graduate students are required to have a sound knowledge of undergraduate physics, including junior/senior level courses in classical mechanics and electricity/magnetism, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and quantum physics, and to have taken upper-division laboratory courses.
