The department is housed in the Science Building and supervises the following degree programs:
  • Bachelor of Science in Physics
  • Master of Science in Physics
  • Master of Science in Applied Physics
  • Doctor of Philosophy in Physics

The physics department also supervises an applied physics option leading to the Ph.D. degree. The B.S.E.P. program in engineering physics is listed under the College of Engineering. These interdisciplinary options afford flexibility in coursework and area of research concentration. Specializations in chemical physics (in cooperation with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry) and biophysics (in cooperation with the Health Sciences Center and the University Medical Center) are also available. An M.S. degree involving industry internships is available to selected graduate students. The department also offers the B.S. with an emphasis in medical physics. This curriculum prepares the student to enter the postgraduate program leading to a doctoral- level degree and certification by the American Board of Radiology.
