POST GRADUATE and Ph.D. DEGREES:
MSc (masters) Degree
Students studying for an MSc (masters) degree must complete a series of required courses and perform original research culminating in a written thesis. The first two semesters are usually dedicated to coursework, during which time the student finds a research advisor and devises a thesis plan. The second year is dedicated to research, under close supervision and mentoring by the faculty advisor.
PhD (doctoral) Degree
This is an intensive program in which the student performs and publishes original scientific research in the research group of a physics professor, with an eye toward becoming established as an independent creative researcher. During the PhD program, doctoral students become experts in their chosen fields and gain advanced knowledge and tools crucial to their development as independent researchers. A small amount of additional coursework is typically required for the PhD degree, as is a written thesis.
