Integrated BS/MS in Physics
USciences is one of the few schools in the tri-state area offering an Integrated, 4+1 year, BS/MS Program in Physics—which prepares you to enter the STEM workforce ahead of schedule.
In five years, you’ll earn your BS and MS degrees in a professionally focused program centered around the advancement of present and future technologies. You’ll have the freedom to build a curriculum around your career goals, while gaining hands-on experience conducting research alongside renowned STEM experts.
What Sets Us Apart?
- Our integrated program lessens the total time and cost required to complete your MS
in Physics. You may earn up to 15 graduate credits during your four undergraduate
years—at no extra charge— and then complete your master’s with just one additional
year of study..
- Three curriculum concentrations at the master’s level reflect the urgent demands of
today’s employers: quantum materials to forge pathways to future technologies; complex
systems to disentangle modern problems of increasing intricacy; and applied biophysics
for enhancing drug development, delivery, and the biomedical field.
- Your hands-on research starts at the undergraduate level—in state-of-the-art facilities—and
continues at the master’s level, with opportunities to work across departments.
- You’re free to tailor your degree by choosing one of the program’s concentrations
and taking elective courses in various disciplines or by developing a personalized
path in conjunction with a faculty advisor.
- Internship opportunities forge valuable connections with local companies representing
a range of scientific and technological fields, health science, and business sectors.
- Renowned faculty provide one-to-one attention and support available only in a small institution.
