Physics Doctoral Program
2 - 5
The Department of Physics offers two-year programs of advanced graduate study leading to the degrees of Master of Science (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Physics. These programs have been established to enable students with strong research motivation to develop their interests through advanced study. The programs of study are accordingly designed as flexibly as possible, in order to enable students to shape their studies as far as possible in accordance with their own specific interests. The Department of Physics has an active General Relativity and Cosmology faculty group, which produces a significant number of important publications in international physics journals every year. Recently, research activities in biomedical optics, biophotonics and nanophotonics have been initiated.
The Ph.D. program involves the completion of at least 21 credits (4 core courses and 3 electives), together the completion of a dissertation. Core courses are offered in the following areas: Mathematical Methods in Physics (II), Classical Mechanics (II), Electromagnetic Theory (II), and Quantum Mechanics (II). Candidates for admission to the M.S. program are required to have completed a B.S. degree or the equivalent in a physics-related field. Applicants for admission to the Ph.D. program are required to have completed an M.S. degree or the equivalent in a physics-related field.
For Ph.D.: Applicants for admission to the Ph.D. Program are required to have completed an M.S. degree in a Physics Department.
