Available Options for Degrees: A (thesis) and B (non-thesis) Option A requires a thesis based on research, while Option B substitutes additional coursework and a research paper/project for the thesis requirement. The non-thesis option is deemed appropriate for students who do not require Ph.D. preparation in physics in order to be successful in their careers.
Students should expect that completion of an M.S. degree take two academic years of full-time study.
