Physics, MS

Today, 66% of physics graduates work in the private sector. Currently, demand is growing among private employers for emerging professionals qualified to address scientific and technological challenges of the future right now. 

Earn your MS in one or two years

USciences offers two options for earning your master’s degree in physics:

  • Our Integrated 4+1 BS/MS Program in Physics allows you to earn up to 15 graduate credits during your four undergraduate years, and then complete your master’s with just one additional year of study—saving time and money.
  • You can complete the MS program in two years after entering with a BS degree from another institution.

What Sets Us Apart?

  1. Three curriculum concentrations 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 applications.
  2. You conduct research alongside top physicists with opportunities to work across disciplines and departments.
  3. 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.
  4. Internship opportunities forge valuable connections with local companies representing various business sectors, health science, and a range of other scientific fields.
  5. Renowned faculty provide one-to-one attention and support available only in a small institution.
