Master of Science in Physics

The objective of the master’s program is to educate the student in both professional engineering and research.

Admission

Applicants must satisfy The University of Tulsa's general admission requirements. For detailed information, refer to the Graduate Bulletin and contact the Graduate School.

It is emphasized that these requirements are minimum requirements. The qualifications of students entering the program are expected to substantially exceed the minimum requirements. A student who meets only the minimum requirements in each of the above areas will normally be denied admission. Applicants are selected for admission throughout the year. The total number of students pursuing graduate degrees will be limited. Applicants must designate their major fields of research interest. The non-thesis master’s program will be required if a thesis advisor is not available.

General Master’s Degree Requirements

  • A 3.0 grade point average is the minimum for the master’s degree program. A student must maintain a 3.0 overall grade point average and at least a 3.0 average in his major field of study.
  • Not more than six hours of C grades in course work are acceptable in the master’s program. Thesis grades are recorded on a pass-fail basis and are not computed in grade point averages. A passing grade in thesis hours is required.
  • All non-thesis master’s program students are initially advised by the graduate program advisor appointed by the chair of the department.
  • All courses taken for graduate credit in other programs shall be selected from those listed in this Bulletin and the choices are subject to the approval of the advisor. No more than six credit hours of approved courses can be transferred.
