Achieve next-level thinking
If the years you spent earning your undergrad degree weren’t enough to satisfy your curiosity for knowledge, then it’s time to explore the next stage of your journey at SFA.
Our graduate program helps students who wish to enter into a career in physics or who wish to continue on to earn their Ph.D. Students have access to our research facilities to help guide their studies such as, among other things, a cryogenics laboratory, atomic force microscope, scanning electron microscope and high vacuum equipment, an observatory with five research grade telescopes, and an environmental sensing and quantum optics laboratory with radiometric instruments and a variety of lasers.
Master of Science in Natural Science - emphasis in physics
The graduate physics program is a thesis program that prepares students for a career in physics or continued studied in the pursuance of a doctoral degree. Students gain a foundation in the principles of classical and quantum physics and their applications while engaging in research.
*See General Bulletin for additional details, guidelines and requirements.
Graduate minor in physics
Students wanting to add a foundation of physics to their graduate studies can pursue a graduate minor in physics.
