Admission requirements: GRE and advanced test recommended; bachelor’s degree with major in physics or closely related discipline. A grade of “B” or better in a rigorous quantum mechanics course is required.

Program requirements: PHY 510 or 610, 525, 530, 570, 575, 576, 577, 580, 591, 670, 680 MTH 513. The student will complete 30 credits, of which no more than six may be below the 500 level. This is a non-thesis program which requires that at least one course will require a substantial paper involving significant independent study, and the student must pass a final written and oral examination.

Courses marked with (*) are recommended but not required, depending on student’s background.
