Graduate Program in Physics

Graduate PhysicsIntuitively, you know what you want to accomplish. The graduate program in IUP physics is designed to help you see your future and reach your goals.

We focus on you the individual. We start by evaluating who you are, where you think you would like to go, and what are your strengths and weaknesses. We then help you to fill in the blanks and strengthen yourself to attain your dreams. A professional career in physics often appears daunting. For good reason. It is. Knowing how the system works and what you need is the first step in succeeding.

 The Professional Science Master’s degree program is designed for students who plan to pursue further graduate work or to undertake research in an industrial position. The degree is research oriented, and a thesis is required.

Foreign Student 3-2 Program

IUP currently has a 3-2 program with several qualifying universities in eastern Europe and Asia. With three years of solid undergraduate preparation at their home institution and approximately two years of study at IUP, undergraduate applicants may finish their home institution’s B.S. degree in Physics by transfer of IUP credits, and also complete the P.S.M. degree in Physics at IUP. This program offers an exceptional opportunity for introducing qualified students to the American research and educational community. IUP may be the perfect place to begin your research career. If you’re interested in pursuing this avenue, please contact us to determine if you and your institution qualify for this program.

Because of the wide range of possible courses, students are required to have the consent of their graduate advisers before selecting a course. An adviser is assigned to students as soon as they are accepted into the degree program.
