Master of Science - Physics

Master of Science - Physics

The Master of Science in Physics program requires a total of 30 credits and is designed for the student who desires to master fundamental concepts and techniques, who is interested in studying applications in various areas of technology and science and who wishes to keep current with the latest experimental and theoretical innovations in these areas. Stevens offer a varied curriculum consisting of either highly specialized courses or broad training in diverse areas.

When you seek an advanced degree, you can gain both breadth and specialization. The required degree courses provide broad skills in basic physics; the elective choices give highly specialized training in a variety of different areas. The Department of Physics and Engineering Physics is large enough to offer rich and varied programs in pure and applied physics, yet it is small enough to sustain the sense of a coherent community in search of knowledge.
