The Physics Department is established as a leader in cutting edge research.
Our faculty direct externally funded centers and conduct pioneering, cutting-edge research in nuclear physics, radiation science, terahertz technologies, advanced materials, photonics device fabrication techniques, and biomedical photonics applications.
For qualifying undergraduates, we also have an Honors Program.
For admissions information, visit the UML admissions site:
Graduate courses taken by a baccalaureate degree student that are credited towards the master’s degree must have been obtained with a grade of B or better. Once the departmental credit requirements for the bachelor’s degree have been met, up to twelve graduate credits (500 level or higher) in excess of the 120 credit baccalaureate degree may be used for the graduate degree. Project or thesis requirements are the same as for all other Physics M.S. Programs.
Options in the major include: Physics & Applied Physics and Radiological Health Physics. The department also offers a Minor.
We offer Master's and Doctoral degrees and programs in Health and Medical Physics. Read about graduate programs in Physics and Radiological Sciences.
