Default Re: Missouri University of Science and Technology Physics Department

Department of Physics of Missouri University of Science and Technology has a strong presence in theoretical and experimental atomic physics; cloud and atmospheric physics; and solid-state and computational physics, with a combined theoretical-experimental profile.

Doctor of Philosophy

Requires a minimum of 72 credit hours beyond bachelor degree and successful completion of a set of eight core courses that include the following:
Physics 409 Classical Mechanics
Physics 411 Electrodynamics I
Physics 461 Quantum Mechanics I
Physics 463 Quantum Mechanics II
Physics 423 Electrodynamics II
Physics 413 Statistical Mechanics
Two other 400-level math or physics lecture courses.

A minimum grade point average of 3.0 must be maintained for all graduate coursework. One must pass a Ph.D. qualifying exam after completing the core course requirements for the MS degree.

Upon completion of all course work except research, one must pass the Ph.D. comprehensive exam, which is designed to ensure ones ability to perform independent research.

Finally, one must complete a minimum of 24 hours of Physics 490 (Graduate Research), during which one will perform supervised scientific research, culminating in a written Ph.D. thesis that is defended in an oral thesis defense.

Qualification Examination

The Qualifying Exam determines whether or not one has achieved a satisfactory degree of mastery of basic physics concepts and is qualified to pursue more advanced study and research in the PhD program.

One who fails the exam on second attempt will be denied matriculation in the PhD program. The exam covers all of the undergraduate physics curriculum, plus the graduate curriculum at the level of the core MS courses.

Exam questions are regularly drawn from the following subject areas at the level indicated:
Quantum mechanics
Classical mechanics
Electrodynamics
Statistical and thermal physics
Relativity, nuclear, and particle physics
